AC Transit – Upcoming Fare Change, Input Needed

The AC Transit Board of Directors will be considering proposals for an upcoming fare change. These changes to our current fare schedule are to keep up with escalating operational costs to run the service effectively, and will be guided by the board’s fare policy goals, which are to be fiscally responsible, simple, transparent, and equitable. To keep with these guiding principles for our fare policy, we also want to ensure that the communities within our service area have sufficient opportunity to provide feedback on these proposed changes. We want to be certain that the final product has taken into consideration a variety of perspectives and has been thoughtfully constructed. To aid us in these efforts, we welcome your input as you represent a large constituency, but we are also asking that you pass along the information below through your various communication channels, ie. Newsletter, eBlasts, etc. In particular, please call attention to the various opportunities for public input and our website for additional up-to-date information: http://www.actransit.org/fareproposal/.
