Planned cut on BART fares may not happen

The BART board will be making their final vote on a plan to reduce BART fares by approximately three percent for a period of three months. While the fare reduction was approved in a preliminary vote on June 10 by a vote of 6-3, there is a chance that the final vote tonight may not allow the fare reduction plan to pass.

After surveying the public, the BART board has found that the majority of the public would prefer the current funds surplus to be saved or used for cleaning the trains.

Because six votes are needed to pass a fare change, only one board member needs to change their opinion from the June 10 preliminary vote.
