BART Updates

January first, BART fares are going to go up by 3.7%:

On Sunday, January 1, 2006, BART fares will increase by 3.7%. This is the first fare increase since January 2004.

The 3.7% increase is based on a formula that accounts for changes in inflation, both locally and nationally, reduced by .5% to account for increased operating efficiencies achieved by BART.

So be sure to hit up that Quickplanner before you head on out.

And for those of you planning on patronizing BART for New Year’s Eve:

The best way to celebrate New Year’s Eve is by leaving your car at home and using BART’s “New Year’s Eve Flash Pass,” good for unlimited rides on BART throughout the holiday evening.

The special New Year’s Eve Flash Pass costs just $6 and gets you unlimited rides on BART from 6 p.m. Saturday, December 31 to 3 a.m. Sunday, January 1.

Riders with passes simply flash them to the BART Station Agent and pass through the station entrance swing gate. No need to use the fare gates!
