BART to implement last of inflation-based fare increases July 1
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (rushPRnews) 07/01/12 — BART Fare increases Starts July 1

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.
