  Notice of July 1, 2017 AC Transit Fare Increase
June 16, 2017

Dear Policymakers,

For the first time in six years, AC Transit is increasing the cost of its bus fares and passes.  Implementing the fare change now will help the District cover rising inflationary costs and remain fiscally sustainable.

These fare changes could affect how your constituents travel throughout the East Bay.  Please help us notify your constituents about the July 1 fare changes by sharing this link via social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) and the other methods you use to reach your constituents.

What Won’t Change
The cost of a Day Pass will not change.  The pass gives riders unlimited rides in a day for a flat $5 fare.  The cost for youth, seniors and people with disabilities will stay at $2.50.

What Will Change
·         All Local and Transbay Cash Fares
·         All Clipper Local and Transbay Fares
·         All 31-Day and Monthly Passes

Detailed information about the July 1 fare change is available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Tagalog at  AC Transit Customer Service can also provide additional assistance in multiple languages at (510) 891-4777.

Thank you in advance for helping us to inform the public about these important fare changes.
