The Joint Powers Board for the Peninsula Corridor voted recently to increase the base fare by 25 cents, and to adjust multi-ride tickets and passes accordingly.
The increase will generate approximately $943,500, the spokesperson said. The fare last rose in April 2007.
The board also approved replacing a 10-ride ticket with an 8-ride ticket, probably in March 2009.
There have been problems with the cutting device on the ticket validating machines for the 10-ride ticket; the 8-ride ticket only needs to be stamped, not cut, according to the press release.
The discount of approximately 15 percent on the 10-ride ticket will carry over to the 8-ride ticket. So will the option to purchase a monthly parking permit with the purchase of two 8-ride tickets.
