AC Transit has announced an increase in fares and passes starting July 1, which the transit agency says hasn’t been done since 2011.
Fares not purchased via Clipper will increase for local single rides from $2.10 to $2.25 for adults, and from $1.05 to $1.10 for youth and seniors.
Fares purchased via Clipper will increase from $2 to $2.15 for adult local single rides, and from $1 to $1.05 for youth and seniors. Transbay single rides will increase for adults from $4.20 to $4.50, while Transbay single rides for youth and seniors will rise from $2.10 to $2.20.
Local day passes will remain the same at $5 (and also $2.50 for youth and seniors), but adult local monthly passes will increase from $75 to $81, while adult Transbay Tube monthly passes will increase from $151.20 to $162.
Youth, senior and disabled monthly passes will increase from $20 to $26.50.
“This fare change reflects an increase originally scheduled for July 1, 2016, but deferred by the AC Transit Board of Directors last year,” the transit agency said. “A fare increase will help AC Transit cover rising inflationary costs and remain fiscally sustainable.”
