Ventura County's largest bus system, South Coast Area Transit, is considering its first fare hike in more than a decade at the request of two of the cities that help pay its bills. The transit system's directors, who usually meet in their own small board room, have reserved the Oxnard City Council chambers because they expect a large turnout at a fare-hike hearing that will begin at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
