Rhode Island bus fares are on the rise.

The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority is reminding passengers that some fares are rising on Tuesday.

The base cash fare for a one-way trip will remain $2, but transfer tickets, seven-day passes and monthly passes have increased.

A transfer ticket is doubling from 50 cents to $1; a seven-day pass will increase from $23 to $25; and the monthly pass is jumping from $62 to $70.

RIPTA CEO Raymond Studley says the bus network has not had fare increases since 2010.
