Muni gets more expensive for second time in 2017


Muni riders who have already purchased a monthly Muni Fast Pass for July may have noticed a bump in price.

That’s because Muni fares will increase starting July 1 across the board from adult monthly Fast Passes to single-cash fares.

The fare increases are part of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s automatic fare index formula. The SFMTA Board of Directors approved the fare increases last year as part of the transit agency’s 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 budget.

Muni riders might also recall that adult monthly Fast Passes increased by $5 at the beginning of the year. This was a separate increase outside of the automatic fare indexing policy approved by the Board of Directors last year as well.

Directors last year also approved to charge cash-paying passengers an extra 25 cents in an effort to increase Clipper card usage on Muni.

Passengers can sign up to ride Muni for free if they meet income requirements.
