Wherever you’re going on the Peninsula, if you’re planning to take a Caltrain, it’s going to cost more starting July 1.
Caltrain’s Board of Directors approved bumping up the rates to all the zones by a quarter, citing operating costs as the reason for doing so, said Caltrain Spokesperson Christine Dunn.
Ticket prices fund about 44 percent of the total cost of running the trains, according to Dunn.
It’s also going to cost more to park your car by the stations. The parking fee is going to go up by a dollar to $4 a day, while the monthly pass to park will cost $40.
This is the 6th time ticket prices have been increased in the past six years.
