Caltrain increases fares

Caltrain fare increases will take effect during the next several months. The agency's board of directors approved the changes during its July meeting.

Day passes will cost 50 cents more, and paper one-way tickets 25 cents more, effective Oct. 5, a move the agency said is meant to encourage use of the reusable Clipper fare card.

The cost of the "Go Pass," which employers may purchase for use by their employees, will rise $15 to $180 in 2015 and to $190 the following year.

Those counting as "youth" will catch a break — the transit agency expanded the category of people qualifying for the 50 percent youth discount by one year to include those who are 18 years old.
