Saginaw STARS to Reinstate Fares

The Saginaw Transit Authority & Regional Services, or STARS, is reminding residents that transportation fares will return October 1st at a reduced rate.

The main bus route fare will be 1 dollar for the general public and 50 cents for seniors or disabled people, down from 1.50 and 75 cents respectively. 30-day passes as well as LIFT Paratransit rides will also cost less compared to pre-pandemic prices. STARS had been using federal relief funds to cover fares through the pandemic, saving Saginaw residents more than 1.25 million dollars in transportation.
