LEE COUNTY, Fla.- LeeTran didn't get much of a reaction to its request for higher fares.

LeeTran wants to raise the basic fare from $1.25 cents, to a $1.50.

The public-supported transit service in Lee County made a presentation to commissioners today, but didn't get a decision. One commissioner asked if higher fares would discourage people from riding.

LeeTran is in need of more funding, so the proposed fare hike could come up again.
