DeCamp To Raise Fares July 5


Share post:

DeCamp Bus Lines will be sharply increasing the cost to ride the #33 Verona-New York City bus route on Tuesday, July 5.

The adult one-way ticket will increase to $9.05, an 11% increase. The 10-trip price will be $79.75, a 10% increase, and the 40-trip monthly pass will be $291.00, up 9% from the current rate.

Tickets purchased prior to July 5 will be honored after that date, but before stocking up, know that there are limits as to how long tickets can be used. One-way tickets are valid for one year, but 10-trip tickets are only good for 30 days. The 40-trip monthly tickets are valid for 60 days.

In its fare hike announcement on Twitter, DeCamp did not say why it was raising prices. But, according to Statista, as of May, the price of a gallon of diesel gas had increased by $2 from May 2021. One gallon of diesel cost an average of $5.57 as of last month.

DeCamp suspended its commuter services for the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic. When it resumed service in June 2021, it offered only half the runs it once had. Its schedule now is very close to its pre-pandemic service, except that there is only one express run from Verona during the morning commute.
