Learn about the plan for a fully unified system that would enable riders to travel seamlessly across the nine-county Bay Area with a single transit fare and free transfers.
This webinar will explain the Integrated Transit Fare Vision recently proposed by Seamless Bay Area, with a map on their website showing how it would work.
The Bay Area has 27 transit agencies with different fare structures — so using transit can be confusing, expensive, and sometimes unfair. What if there were one simple map to figure out how much you pay — no matter what type of transit you take, how many times you transfer, or how many different transit agencies you used?
Seamless Bay Area’s just-published Integrated Transit Fare Vision Map explains how it would work.
In this webinar:
Christof Spieler, the Director of Planning at Huitt-Zollars and the author of “Trains, Buses, People: An Opinionated Atlas of US Transit,” will discuss what’s wrong with fares in many U.S. regions and what a good fare structure should do.
Ian Griffiths, director of Seamless Bay Area, will talk in more detail about the development of the Fare Vision Map, how integrated fares would benefit riders across the region, and what our region needs to do to make them a reality.
They will also talk about actions you can take to get our transit agencies and leaders to advance the reforms that could bring about integrated fares.
