BART fares to increase 2.7 percent in 2018

News

WALNUT CREEK (KRON)– Riding BART will soon cost more as the transit agency plans to hike up fares in 2018.

Starting Jan. 1 fares will increase, including discounted prices.  The price hike occurs every other year to keep up with inflation.

The minimum fare will increase to $2.00 for Adults, $1 for Youth, and $.75 for Senior/Disabled Clipper users.

KRON4’s Lydia Pantazes says there is a way to save. Currently, children ages 4-12 are eligible for youth discounts. At the top of the new year, anyone 18 or younger will be able to get a 50-percent discount. Children who are 4 and under always ride free.

Senior and persons with disabilities will continue to get a 62.5-percent discount.

The extra cost is being added to encourage customers to use Clipper for fare payment. There won’t be an extra cost for Clipper fares.WHAT OTHERS ARE CLICKING ON:
