Select Caltrain fares going up July 1

CaltrainSome Caltrain commuters are sure to grumble July 1, when select fares are scheduled to increase.

Riders purchasing paper tickets from vending machines will pay 25 cents more for a one-way ticket and 50 cents more for a day pass.

The hike is intended to ramp up usage of Clipper cards, the Bay Area’s multisystem pass.

From the Caltrain announcement:

If at least 50 percent of the one-way tickets are paid for with Clipper by March 1, 2013, then Caltrain will not implement a second increase. Otherwise, beginning July 1, 2013, one-way zone fares will increase by 25 cents and Day Pass zone fares will increase by 50 cents.

Also, discounts for eight-ride ticket customers will be trimmed from 15 percent to 7.5 percent, and the tickets' “validity period will be cut in half to 30 days.”
