Caltrain considers continuing Monthly Pass discount through 2023

in Community/Infrastructure

Caltrain is considering extending its 20 percent discount on the Monthly Pass through June 30, 2023, in order to encourage more commuters to return to its trains post-pandemic, and to provide essential workers who have been riding the system regularly during the pandemic with some financial relief.

In March, the discount was approved only through September this year.

Caltrain will host public hearings later this month (see below) to gather feedback on potential fare structure changes.

The transit agency is also seeking public comment on proposals to postpone fare changes approved by its Board of Directors in 2019, including reducing Adult One-Way Clipper discounts from 55 cents to 25 cents; three incremental fare increases occurring every other year that alternate between increasing the base fare by 50 cents and the zone fare by 25 cents; and two incremental fare increases to the Go Pass by 5 percent every other year.
