City bus fares will rise if the Iowa City City Council approves the measure on April 3.

The increase was proposed as part of the fiscal 2013 budget. The standard fare would increase from 75 cents to $1.

According to the proposal, the fee increase will move toward city officials' goal of having user fees cover 30 to 35 percent of operation costs.

The last fee increase was in 1996.

Councilors will vote on the third consideration of the ordinance at their next meeting, April 3.
