BART and AC Transit fares are set to increase on Jan. 1.

BART fares will go up by 5.4 percent as part of an inflation-based program first approved by the BART Board of Directors in 2003 and renewed in 2013. The Clipper fare for a short trip from Downtown Berkeley to 19th St./Oakland will increase by 10 cents, per the 5.4 percent increase. The fare for a longer trip like Antioch to Montgomery will increase by 40 cents. To view the new fare chart, click here.

Meanwhile, riders on AC Transit will see a base fare increase of 50 cents starting Jan. 1 as part of a five-year Transbay fare plan adopted last year to pay for service advancements and capital obligations for the Salesforce Transit Center, the transit agency said.
