San Francisco MTA to hike cable car fares
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) will increase fares for its cable-car line, effective Jan. 1, 2020.
Single ride fare and one-day passes for the agency’s cable car will increase by $1, while three- and seven-day passes will increase by $2.
Cable car fares have not changed since 2015, SFMTA officials said in a press release.
“These fare changes … will ensure that our system will continue to deliver safe and reliable service,” officials said. The increase is formulated based on inflation and operational budget projections.
The SFMTA's board last week also approved discounted fares for all qualified seniors, youth and people with disabilities and free access for qualified seniors, youth and people with disabilities who have a low income.
