STAMFORD - Commuters will have the chance to weigh in on a potential rate hike for trains and buses this week.

Two public hearings are scheduled at UConn's Stamford campus Wednesday.

One will be held from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m., the other from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Officials have proposed a 5 percent increase on buses and trains starting in December.
