Foothill Transit says it is listening to its riders.
In a meeting next month to determine rate and and other changes throughout the San Gabriel Valley, the executive board of Foothill Transit is expected to present a proposal culled from the public's suggestions, officials said.
Changes in bus fare were scheduled for implementation in January. But after hearing riders' input during five public hearings in September and October, the West Covina-based bus company came up with a compromise proposal, and any change will be postponed until July 1997, said Michael De La Torre, Foothill Transit president.
"As a result of the public's comments, we reevaluated the proposals and developed a fifth option that we believe will be more acceptable to the majority of customers," he said.
