We’re in the final phase of reviewing our transit fares. The Transit Fare Review phase four is here and we’re ready to share our recommendations with you!
After months of public consultation, research, and technical analysis, we’re proposing a new distance-based fare structure on rapid transit with prepaid passes updated to reflect this change. Buses will be kept as a flat fare to ensure simplicity. We are also proposing recommendations for changes to how we price by time of day and discounts for customers. Read more »
On Sunday, July 1, the annual scheduled transit fare change takes effect.
Phase One of the Mayors Council’s 10-Year Vision calls for much-needed transit investments to increase capacity, reduce overcrowding and introduce bus service to new areas.
To help fund this, the Mayors’ Council identified annual increases to transit fares over the next decade, which was announced in November 2016 as part of Phase One‘s approval. These minor fare increases will help bring more and better service to everyone in the region.
Beginning Sunday, July 1, transit fares will increase by 5 to 10 cents.
Single-use concession fares will increase by five cents for Stored Value fares and 10 cents for cash fares.
Single-use adult fares will increase by 10 cents (this includes HandyDART).
DayPass fares will increase by 25 cents.
Monthly pass fares will increase between $1 and $2, depending on zone type.
Fare increases will be the same on West Coast Express.
