Cable Car and Passport Fare Changes Beginning January 1

Friday, December 6, 2019

Hyde Line Cable Car passing the Cable Car Museum

Beginning in the new year, our Cable Car and Passport customers will see a new fare increase. Tickets for our Single Ride Cable Car will increase by $1. Prior to that, Cable Car tickets have not changed since 2015. One Day Passports will increase by $1 while Three Day and Seven Day Passports will increase by $2. These fare changes will apply to Clipper Card and MuniMobile users as well as in-person sales.

These fare changes are crucial to running and improving San Francisco’s transportation system. They will ensure that our system will continue to deliver safe and reliable service. The SFMTA strives to make Muni as accessible and equitable as possible. While making adjustments to some fares, the SFMTA Board of Directors have also approved the following fare types that allow those who qualify to travel at deeply reduced rates or for free: discounted fares for all seniors, youth and people with disabilities; Free Muni for seniors, youth and people with disabilities who are low income and a Lifeline pass for low-income adults.

We are dedicated in maintaining adequate and clear fare changes to our customers. These changes are consistent with the budget adopted by the SFMTA Board of Directors in April 2017. Muni fare increases are established by our Automatic Fare Indexing Policy. This means that fines and fees are formulated by inflation and operational budget projections.
