The Village of Oswego approved last Tuesday the new Park and Ride pass rates out of the Orchard Road station through the new provider, Kendall Area Transit (KAT).
A 10-ride pass, based on the daily fare of $1.75, will be $17.50 and a monthly pass will be set at $30, said Mark Horton, Oswego’s director of finance.
To compare, the cost to park at the Aurora Train Station is $31.50 for a month, assuming one can find a spot, said Horton.
The annual revenue Horton said the village can expect from the pass sales is estimate to be $6,200.
The money made on daily park and ride fares will go straight to KAT and not to the village, so Horton encouraged residents to purchase the passes to support the village.
The KAT service will provide five different options to the Aurora Train Station and is expected to start in the beginning of January.
