After a meeting last month with the Ithaca Hours Board, TCAT has announced the county's bus system will start accepting Hours for fares.
Details are still unformed. Most likely, Hours will at first be accepted as partial payment for passes, rather than in the fare box.
Time magazine is researching an article on community currencies across the country, and suggests that this is the first collaboration between a community currency and a government entity.
The Time article is scheduled for publication this month.
Developing details about Hours and TCAT will be posted on www.ithacahours.org.
