Transit Fare Increases, 1993 to present

The District operates the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Transit and Golden Ferry with four primary funding sources: Bridge tolls, transit fares, grants and contracts, and advertising/concessions. Transit fare increases assist in meeting operating expenses, which in turn assist the District in providing its public transit services. The current target set for bus fares is that they cover 25% of operating costs of regional bus services and for ferry fares is that they cover 40% of ferry operating costs.

Golden Gate Transit  and Golden Gate Ferry fares have been increased as follows since 1994: 

  • July 1, 1993, bus fares increased 10% specifically for travel to the East Bay and to San Francisco from Marin County.
  • July 1, 1994, bus fares increased up to 14% for travel from Sonoma and Marin counties to San Francisco.
  • July 1, 1994, the daily Sausalito Ferry adult cash fare increased from $3.75 to $4.25, and the Larkspur Ferry weekend adult cash fare increased from $3.25 to $4.25 (the Larkspur Ferry weekday adult cash fare remained at $2.50).
  • July 1, 1998, a Five-year Fare Increase Program was implemented; bus and ferry fares increased annually as follows: 10% in 1998; 3% in 1999; 4.2% in 2000; 5.5 % in 2001; 5.4% in 2002.
  • July 1, 2003, bus fares were increased by 5% and ferry fares increased from 30% to 70% to bring them into line with other ferry fares in the Bay Area as they were considerably lower.
