services the campus and surrounding neighborhood, and is provided by the Department of Parking and Transportation of UC Berkeley
free of charge to students & campus affiliates, but community members can also ride for a nominal fee of approximately $1
annual ridership of 500,000 individuals for daytime rides and 40,000 for nighttime rides AC Transit "Class Pass":
provides unlimited free rides for UC students
established in 1999 through referendum for deep discount group pass incorporated directly into student fees
2012 cost was $68 per student per semester with an assessed value of $1200 this increases ridership for the largest AC Transit constituent group and provides more local jobs Ways that BART is reducing its end-user cost cost efficient improvements to the fleet's interior quality and durability
instead of ordering new cars, BART is reupholstering its seats with durable vinyl covers
raise parking costs
maintaining BART parking lots cost $6 million a year more than its profits
to solve this, BART raises parking fees so that only those who drive are charged for the parking lots Concluding thoughts increase ridership to prevent raising fares
BART and AC Transit would not have to raise fees to accommodate for cutbacks
more subsidies for low-income riders
renewing the Class Pass referendum when it expires
provide greater advantage for buying multiple tickets (ex. $64 ticket for $60)
larger incentive to take public transit more often prices for AC Transit local service were substantially cheaper up until the financial recession of the late 2000s
since the service caters to a smaller community than its metropolitan peers, it must compensate by charging higher rates Transbay tube adds to maintenance fees
fare prices based on distance rather than rides
lower ridership levels
New York: 1.655 billion
Moscow: 2.39 billion
Beijing: 2.46 billion
Barcelona: 434.6 million
BART: 123.2 million UC Berkeley alone consists of over 36,000 students and 2,100 employees Ariel Prince, Candace Chan, Fayyaz Mukarram, and Jessica Tran Daily Life in Berkeley low levels of car ownership:
between 41% and 55% of housing units lacked private vehicles from 2006 to 2010 and thus, high reliance on public transit:
between 25% and 40% of employees commuted to work using public transit from 2006 to 2010
at least one bus stop within a .25 mile distance of any point in the downtown Berkeley district as of 2009 this innovation encourages students and faculty to use public transportation to access the campus and surrounding area, thus decreasing congestion on the roads why are BART fares so expensive?
