StarTran Rolls Out Cheaper Bus Fares

Starting Monday morning, it's a whole lot cheaper to take the bus.  StarTran is dropping the price for a monthly pass.   

StarTran wants more people on their buses, and so, a substantial price reduction for 31-consecutive day bus passes.  StarTran drops the price from $45 to $17.  The savings for bus riders was included in the city budget in an effort to fill more bus seats.  It's also a way of putting a little extra cash in the pockets of those who use the service.   

 In another effort to push ridership, StarTran is in contract with UNL to put more buses along the #24 Holdrege route for college students.  The bus increase includes 4 to 8 buses.  It starts in January.
