Old guy (me) when I go solo pays $8.80 + tx =$9.94 per night.  So $46.05 is 463% increase.

Numbers and stats are funny things. How one looks at them is pertinent to the outcome. Sorry to come across like an old school teacher, but here are two ways to look at the example of an existing solo rate of $9.94 and a proposed rate of $46.05 .

$46.05 divided by $9.94 = 4.63 . This translates to the new rate being 463% of the old rate.

$46.05 minus $9.94 = $36.11 . This translates to an increase of $36.11 .

$36.11 divided by $9.94 = 3.63 . This translates to the increase being 363% of the old rate.

Somewhat a case of apples and oranges! But one heck of an increase either way of looking at it! https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png

Not that I think it matters... they are all big numbers but Martin's Math is correct.. Assuming AP moves to the Massasauga fee structure it would all be a 270% increase. senior and regular.

Seniors rate in Massasauga is 36.86 - 9.94 = 26.92/9.94 = 2.7 * 100 = 270%

Well, it is, but only when people who do the math pay for it.
