CalTrain is one of the fastest-growing rail systems in the Bay Area. Ridership is up over 70% from 2010. Rising maintenance & rail operations costs, plus no dedicated source of funding, has forced CalTrain to raise fares systemwide.
Fares for adults on CalTrain will rise 50 cents on February 28th, 2016. Parking will also raise by 50 cents on July 1st, 2016. Clipper passengers will still get a 15% discount. The monthly parking permit fee will also rise $5.
As a result of the fare change the Day Pass, 8-Ride Tickets, and Monthly Passes will all rise in fares as well. Discount fares will still be 50% off the adult tickets.
