Public Meetings Set to Receive Comments on Proposed 5-year GGT Fare Program

Informational Open Houses and Public Hearings have been set to receive public comment on a proposed 5-year fare program on Golden Gate Transit (GGT) and Golden Gate Ferry (GGF). The proposal includes the following:

  • Annual 5% increase, effective July 1, 2011, on the following fares:
    • GGT regional intercounty services
    • Local rides within Marin County taken on GGT regional bus routes
    • Larkspur Ferry “single ride” (cash) fare (ferry Clipper fares are not included in this proposal)
    • Complementary ADA paratransit service
  • $1 increase on Sausalito Ferry “single ride” adult fare, effective July 1, 2011, and a 5% increase each subsequent year beginning July 1, 2012 (ferry Clipper fares are not included in this proposal)
  • Increase of “special event” (AT&T Park) ferry fare equal to the proposed “single ride” Larkspur Ferry adult fare
  • An annual review to determine if an adjustment to the 5-year program or special event fare is needed
