BART and samTrans Fare Increases Effective January 2016


Fare increase effective January 1, 2016.

BART’s inflation-based fare increase program is set to slightly raise the price of trips by 3.4% starting on January 1, 2016 in order to help pay for high-priority improvement projects riders will benefit from.

For example, a one-way trip in 2015 between Daly City and Powell Street Station today costs $3.15 – starting in January it will increase to $3.25.  A Fremont to Embarcadero trip will increase from $5.95 to $6.15.  Airport travelers will see a similar small increase – a one-way trip between San Francisco International Airport and Walnut Creek will increase from $10.40 to $10.75.
