Muni Reminds Customers of May Fare and Fee Increase
Release date: 4/29/10
*** Press Release ***
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which operates the Municipal Railway (Muni) and oversees all surface transportation in San Francisco, reminds Muni customers that the fares for discount passes for senior, youth and people with disabilities has increased from $15 to $20 as of the start of the sales period, April 10 for online sales and April 26 for in store sales, and on May 1 the $2.50 processing fee for parking ticket payments and online sales will be implemented.
In January, increases were enacted for adult Muni passes. The increases in discounted monthly passes for seniors, youth and people with disabilities were postponed from Jan. 1 to May 1 during budget discussions last spring with the Mayor’s office and the Board of Supervisors in order to keep fares as low as possible for Muni’s most economically-vulnerable customers.
This increase also affects the Senior/Disabled Pilot Pass: a joint program between BART and the SFMTA to allow senior and disabled customers unlimited access to BART in San Francisco and on all Muni transit services. Pilot participants have been advised that the monthly Senior/Disabled Pilot Pass will be sold for five dollars more than the current Senior Pass or monthly Disabled Sticker. As of May 1, the pilot pass will be $25.
In addition, beginning May 1 a transaction fee of $2.50 for online payments of citations and purchases of Muni passes and parking cards sales will be assessed. Previously this fee has been absorbed by the SFMTA. As a cost saving measure, it will now be assessed with the transaction.
