A public meeting on proposed increases to Caltrain ticket prices is set for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at the Mountain City Council Chambers, 500 Castro St.
Caltrain officials are seeking to increase fares by 25 cents per zone for paper tickets, and to eliminate eight-ride passes. Fares for passengers using Clipper cards, including for monthly passes, would remain the same.
The increased fares, which would become effective July 1, would raise the price of traveling from Mountain View to San Jose by 50 cents, from $4.75 to $5.25, and from Mountain View to San Francisco from $6.75 to $7.50.
Comments on the proposed fares may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org; sent to District Secretary, Caltrain, P.O. Box 3006, San Carlos, CA 94070; or telephoned to (800) 660-4287 (TDD for hearing impaired only 508-6448).
