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 times you transfer, or how many different transit agencies you used?
Now there is! Come learn about Seamless Bay Area’s just-published Integrated Transit Fare Vision Map on Nov. 10 with transit expert Christof Spieler and Seamless Bay Area’s Policy Director Ian Griffiths.
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 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.
We'll also talk about actions you can take to get our transit agencies and leaders to advance the reforms that could bring about integrated fares.
