AC Transit proposes changes to Local Fares

AC Transit proposes changes to Local Fares

January 25,2019

Three community meetings scheduled to discuss and gather feedback.

The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit), invites community members from our Alameda and Contra Costa counties service areas to attend one of three community meetings to hear discussions on proposed local fare changes.

Each community meeting will address three key proposals under consideration by the Board of Directors:

1. Plan for the Future – Simplified and predictable fare schedules that reflect our array of transit benefits, and our mindfulness of rising operational cost.

2. Save more with Clipper – Incentive discounts, up to .50 cents for Adult Single Ride and Adult Day Pass, and as much as .25 cents for Youth/Senior/Disabled Single Ride and Day Pass.

3. Pay as you go – An option to pay for your pass (one ride at a time) using a mobile fare application. The mobile app ensures you never over spend.**

Riders may provide input by attending either of these scheduled community meetings:

  • Monday, January 28, 2019
    Hayward City Hall, Room 2A
    777 B Street, Hayward, CA 94541
