Muni Fast Passes up $2 in July
Who knew about this before this week? I didn’t. And judging by the lack of Fast Pass-related vitriol in our Twitter feed, it sounds like a lot of people didn’t get the memo.
Adult M Fast Passesâ€”Muni onlyâ€”go up to $66 from $64 starting with July passes. Adult A passesâ€”Muni and in-city BARTâ€”will be $76, up from $74. The official word from Paul Rose at SFMTA: “This was approved last year as part of the current two year budget, as part of the consumer price index.”
The email from Clipper, of which I took the screenshot above, also included some helpful tips:
Donâ€™t get caught short! Prepare for these changes:
- Manage your transit benefits
Contact your transit benefit provider or log in to your transit benefit account to make sure your benefits cover these Muni price increases starting with your July pass.
- Check your Autoload funding source
Make sure that the funding source linked to your Clipper card has sufficient balance to cover the Muni pass price increases or your pass will be blocked. Adjust your Autoload settings now.
*Note: No refunds will be granted for costs resulting from blocked passes. Please manage your Clipper card account to prepare for these upcoming price increases.
I mean, I get it, “Muni Fast Pass increases by $2” is perennial headline at this point. But there is decidedly little fanfare over this news, right? Especially since, at least at my company, we’re fast approaching the deadline for making transit-benefit changes for July.
Consider this your fanfare (arms flailing slightly), and update your information accordingly, like, now.
