Starting July 1, many fares for riding Muni will increase. Yes, you’ve heard this before. No, it isn’t dejá vu.
KTVU has the details:
On July 1, select cash and Clipper fares, as well as some major fees and fines will increase, SFMTA officials said.
The discount cash fare for persons with disabilities, youth and seniors will increase from 75 cents to $1.
