AC Transit Approves Fare Increase

The AC Transit Board of Directors has approved a fare increase that automatically raises fares at regular intervals over a 10-year period. Action Alameda News previously reported on the proposed increases last month.

The transit agency announced the decision yesterday in a press release. The first increase will take effect on August 1st with a 10-cent rise in the basic adult fare and a five-cent fare increase for youth, seniors and the disabled. Local adult fares will increase from $2.00 to $2.10 and youth fares will increase from $1.00 to $1.05.

According to the agency, the board voted 5 to 1, with one abstention, to approve the plan. “We cannot expect to continue to have low fares without having some impact on service,’’ said Board President Elsa Ortiz. “For that reason I am voting for it.”

AC Transit expects the first increase in August of this year to boost its annual revenue by $2.4 million.
