Muni fare increase arrives July 1

The cost of Muni’s monthly Fast Passes and single rides for youth, seniors and disabled will go up starting July 1.

Adult monthly ‘A’ Fast Pass with access to San Francisco BART stations will rise from $80 to $83, while the adult ‘M’ pass will rise from $68 to $70. Monthly passes for youth, seniors and the disabled will increase from $24 to $25.

This is the second increase in monthly passes within the last nine months after the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency increased fares last September. The increases are part of the transit agency’s approved two-year budget using its Automatic Consumer Price Index Policy to set fares for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.

The adult single-ride fare increased last year, and will remain the same this year at $2.25. A single-ride fare for youth, seniors and disabled riders will rise from $0.75 to $1.00.

The transit agency still offers free Muni for low- and middle-income youth, seniors and disabled riders for riders who meet the income level qualifications. Riders can fill an online application on the SFMTA’s website to apply.

Other fares on the rise include the cable car ($6 to $7) and the Lifeline Monthly Pass ($34 to $35).

The SFMTA has a full list of fare and fine increases that take effect July 1.

The San Francisco Bay Ferry, Golden Transit and Ferry and Caltrain will also increase some of its fares starting July 1.
