BART’s Excursion Fare is $6.20 (for a Clipper Card) or $6.70 (regular adult paper ticket). It allows anyone to tour the BART system for up to three hours if you enter and exit at the same station. If you want to exit shortly after you enter, you must see an Station Agent to avoid the excursion fare.
