MARTA Fare Rate Increases Now Under Way

The fare changes are part of scheduled three-year phase-in.

As part of the fiscal year 2013 budget, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority's scheduled fare increase for Reduced Fare and Mobility fare products took effect Sunday.

The change was part of the previously announced three-year phased increases MARTA adopted for those fare types products during the fiscal year 2010 budgetary cycle. The phase-in was planned to mitigate the financial impact on the budgets of seniors and those with disabilities.

The reduced fare and mobility fare changes are as follows:

Fare Type

Current

New fare as of Nov. 11, 2012

Reduced (Half-Fare)

$0.95

$1

Mobility Base (One-Way)

$3.80

$4

Mobility Pass

$122

$128

The FY 2013 budget also included a “steady state” level of current bus and rail services while increasing mobility services by about 9 percent, MARTA officials said. That budget also includes increasing safety and security measures and repair projects.
