• MST makes fare adjustments to comply with Measure Q

     Beginning December 5

    Beginning Saturday, December 5, all veterans will be eligible for MST’s discount fare – the first new major initiative as a result of Measure Q (the 1/8 cent sales tax for transit services for seniors, veterans, and persons with disabilities that was approved by voters last November). To receive an MST photo courtesy card, which entitles the holder to a 50 percent discount off of all fares when boarding the bus as well as the purchase of MST’s daily, weekly, and monthly passes, veterans can visit any of MST’s three customer service locations with one of the following proofs of identification:

    •     DD Form 214
    •     US Department of Veterans Affairs ID card
    •     Veterans of Foreign Wars ID card
    •     Membership card from the American Legion
    •     Disabled American Veterans ID card•     CA driver license or ID card with “veteran” designation

    In addition, a number of minor fare adjustments are being implemented on December 5 in order to maintain compliance with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. These include fare reductions on lines 20 and 43 as well as fare increases on lines 7, 8, and 47. And, base fares on MST’s “senior shuttles” (lines 91, 92, 93, 94 and 95) will increase from $1.50 to $2.50; however, those individuals eligible for MST’s discount fare – 65 and over, 18 and under, persons with disabilities, Medicare card holders and veterans – will continue to pay 75 cents on those “senior shuttle” routes with funds provided by Measure Q.

    For more information, please see the revised bus fare table brochure aboard MST buses or call MST customer service at 1-888-MST-BUS1 or visit www.mst.org.
