Presently, the bus transit industry of the United States is facing stiff challenges caused by fiscal constraints. Rising operating deficits in urban bus transit have necessitated an increased external fiscal support. The Federal government is continually providing financial assistance to the transit industry. A major challenge faced by the industry is to provide needed service in the most efficient and equitable manner. Distance-based fare structures are considered to provide the greatest equity to the passengers. However, implementation of distance based fare structures requires sophisticated fare collection equipment. Interest in implementing equitable fare structures has prompted the research need to explore the possibilities of instituting distance-based fare structures.
