Marin ferry and bus riders brace for more fare hikes

There are 1 comment on the Marin Independent Journal story from Feb 22, 2011, titled Marin ferry and bus riders brace for more fare hikes. In it, Marin Independent Journal reports that:

Passengers who take Golden Gate Transit buses and ferries will likely see a 5 percent fare hike beginning July 1. The same 5 percent hike would also continue for another four years - through 2015 - under the plan, aimed to help solve the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District's five-year, $89 million deficit.

the deficit will never go away
even if it did they would find another reason for the continuing increases
subsidizing service for others thru reduced fairs
they need to decide if it is a commuter service to sf or a local bus service for marin/sonoma
trying to be all things to all people without the funding
if a route doesn't generate enough passengers eliminate it
you don't need weekend ferry service at larkspur
nice to have but why are you running a 715 passenger boat to carry 50-100 people?
