Albany -- The price of bus fare in Albany may go up, and passengers can blame higher fuel prices.

Albany transit is asking for a 25 percent increase in rates. Right now, it costs an adult one dollar for a bus ride.

If the city approves the proposed budget for 2009 that fee will be a $1.25. The increase will help pay for higher prices at the pump.

"Well of course the passenger fairs help defray our operating expense, and fuel is an operating expense. So, absolutely," said Albany Transit Director, Nedra Woodyatt.

Albany Transit also proposed a five-year development plan that will improve the frequency of bus pick-ups and add to the span and time of their current routes.
