October 2014 was the first fare increase at EMTA in over 17 years. This year will mark the 4th increase in EMTA’s 5 year fare-increase plan which was approved by EMTA’s board.

Fares are increasing in order to comply with regulations, keep pace with inflation, and maintain comparable prices to our transit peers. EMTA fares remain one of the lowest in the state of Pennsylvania.
