A lot of US bus ridership is by low income people who would ride less if fares were raised. LACMTA does occasional surveys of their riders and a majority of their riders are making under $20,000 per year.

I think we see the higher fares in cities that are wealthier like Seattle or New York. Cities with low fares like LA, Houston, and New Orleans generally have low-income rider bases.
