Ga., going through the eastern part of Ar kansas using Balesville or Jo nesboro for one of its points Responsibility for completing that study rests with the state of Alabama.

State Denies Inlrastale Bus Fares Increase LITTLE ROOK (.AP) -- The state Transportation Commis- ion Wednesday denied a 10 per cent increase in intrastate rates or six bus companies because most of them failed to heed the agency's request .that they change their intrastate cost al- ocation formulas. , ' The rate increase would have made fares about the same as those for interstate passengers vhich are set by the Interstate iommerce Commission. The National Bus Traffic Association sought the increase in reyhound Lines, Inc.; K.G. ines, Inc.; Jefferson Lines, 'nc.; Great Southern Coaches, Inc., Continental Trailways, nc., and four smaller bus companies. Most of the companies used variations of a basic two-part ormula that averaged the estimated number of intrastate Dassengers · and revenues derived from them in relation to the system as a whole to allocate costs of their operations within a particlar state. Garry Brewer, commission chairman, has asked whether it would not be more pertinent to average the number of intrastate passengers with the amount of passenger miles they traveled. Brewer said Wednesday that Arkansas probably w o 11 1 d be the first slate to insist upon an intrastale cost allocation formula that relied heavily on passenger miles.
