July 1, 2012
Effective Sunday, July 1, 2012, BART will implement the last in a series of inflation-based fare increases when fares increase by 1.4%. Because BART fares are rounded to the nearest nickel, some fares will remain the same after the increase, including the minimum BART fare of $1.75, and the average fare will go up by five cents. Fares last increased in July 2009.
The 1.4% value of the increase is calculated by taking the changes in both national and local inflation and then subtracting 0.5% to account for improved BART operating efficiencies. Extensive outreach was done to gather public input about this increase, the last in a series of four inflation-based fare increases made between 2006 and 2012. The resulting additional revenue has been key to BART’s financial health and continued ability to provide safe, reliable service.
