SFMTA set to raise fares, fees July 1


Select fares along the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's (SFMTA) lines are slated to increase July 1, the agency announced yesterday.

Adult monthly passes for the Municipal Railway (Muni) will go up from $68 to $70, while the combined monthly pass for Muni and Bay Area Rapid Transit trains will increase from $80 to $83.

Additionally, cash fares for youth, seniors and disabilities will increase from $0.75 to $1.00.

The increases are a result of the SFMTA's automatic consumer price index (CPI), which uses a formula based on the Bay Area's CPI and agency labor costs.

The policy is aimed at creating "a more predictable and transparent way to set changes," SFMTA officials said in a press release.

The agency will raise various other fees and fines, as well.
