Bus agencies increase price of BART Plus Ticket


Bus agencies increase price of BART Plus Ticket

Beginning July 1, 2009, bus agencies will increase the price of the BART Plus ticket.  Because of the economic downturn affecting the participating BART Plus transit partners, the bus portion of the BART Plus ticket will increase $5.00 per period. There is no change to the stored BART value of the BART Plus ticket. As of June 21, 2009, ticket vending machines in all stations will dispense Part A of the BART Plus ticket with the new prices.

BART PLUS TRANSIT PARTNERS
If you use the BART Plus ticket, you get unlimited local bus rides during the valid half-month period on County Connection, Dumbarton Express, SamTrans, Santa Clara VTA, Rio Vista Delta Breeze, SF Muni, Tri Delta Transit, Union City Transit, WestCAT and WHEELS. For details, pick up a copy of the July 2009 "BART Plus Ticket Guide" brochure from the station brochure kiosk or visit our website www.bart.gov/tickets for the terms and conditions of using the BART Plus ticket.
