You may have to bring an extra dollar with you next time you hop on the Algiers Ferry. On Tuesday, the RTA’s board of directors approved a $2 fee for passengers.

Earlier this month, residents sounded off at a public hearing saying the fee was unreasonable.

The rate increase now goes to the city council for a final vote next Thursday.
