Calif.'s SMART proposes base fares ranging from $4 to $6

Posted on June 1, 2016

PETALUMA, Calif. — Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) officials are focusing on a base fare of between $4 and $6 to ride the rail line once service debuts later this year, with additional costs tacked on the farther one travels, The Press Democrat reports.

Under current proposals, it would cost $12 to ride the entire 43-mile route from north Santa Rosa to downtown San Rafael. SMART staff said the fare structure would meet the target of generating $5 million annually in fare revenue, which is based on a number of assumptions, including ridership estimates. The rail agency has until June 15 to finalize the initial fare structure. For the full story, click here.
