TRANSIT FARE POLICIES AND STRATEGIES

The purpose of the project is to develop a long-term fare policy for the Metro-Dade Transit Agency (MDTA). This work takes into account existing and historical fare structures in Dade County, fare policies at other multimodal transit agencies, transfer policies, treatment of intermodal fares, discounts for multi-trip purchases, time-of-day differentials, and distance-based fares. Additional issues related to technology and publicity are also presented. Magnetic fare cards and "smart cards" are among the most important technological improvements in fare collection in recent years, and the potentials and pitfalls of this technology are discussed.
