Caltrain suspends planned increase for Clipper fares

in Community/Featured/Headline

Caltrain is suspending its planned changes to Clipper fares due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The decision in September would have raised the single-ride adult fare to 30 cents for Clipper customers on April 1. It would have also increased the adult monthly pass by $9 for Clipper users.

Because of the ongoing public health crisis, Caltrain fares, including Clipper fares, will not change for the time being, according to Caltrain.

“Caltrain will continue to assess the situation to inform future decisions about any fare or service changes,” the transit agency said in a statement.

On Monday, when the regional shelter-in-order was announced, Caltrain announced its one-way and day pass ticket sales had declined by about 75 percent from their levels two weeks prior. With continued dramatic ridership declines expected, Caltrain began operating on a reduced peak-hour schedule that no longer features Baby Bullet Service. The updated weekday schedule is available at www.caltrain.com.
