SFMTA and BART Open Registration for Muni/BART Senior and Disabled Fast Pass Pilot
Release date: 10/16/09
*** Press Release ***
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which operates the Municipal Railway (Muni), and the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) have announced the opening of registration for an 18-month joint pilot project to allow senior and disabled customers unlimited access to BART in San Francisco and all Muni transit services with the purchase of a single pass. Interested seniors and persons with disabilities may enter a drawing to participate. The first phase of the pilot will begin February 2010; the registration deadline for those who wish to participate is November 30.
In order to participate in the pilot program, seniors and persons with disabilities must register for a random lottery by going to the SFMTA Web site at www.sfmta.com or by calling 311.
The current Muni Adult Fast Pass® allows unlimited BART access within the City of San Francisco and all regular transit services offered by Muni. The Senior/Disabled Pass Pilot will assess the functionality, popularity and potential costs of implementing a similar program for senior and disabled Muni customers. The SFMTA and BART are working together to develop a pass for this purpose. If deemed successful, the pass could be added to TransLink®, the regional transit smart card (www.translink.org).
To enter the first round of the lottery, a senior or disabled customer must register no later than November 30. Every six months during the pilot, 2,000 participants will be randomly selected to receive the Senior/Disabled Pilot Pass.
Senior and persons with disabilities will be required to demonstrate eligibility or verify their age. Pilot participants will be required to carry the pass as well as a valid form of identification when using the pass.
