The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District, or NICTD, will host a final public hearing this evening regarding a proposal to increase fare prices about 5 percent.

Revenue generated by the 5 percent fare increase would pay for Positive Train Control, a safety system mandated through the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008, which can slow speeding trains, and override human operating errors.
