SURVEY OF FARE POLICIES AT LARGE TRANSIT SYSTEMS

The Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida designed and conducted a national survey of fare policies for the Metro-Dade Transit Agency (MDTA). The purpose of the survey was to determine fare policies at other large transit agencies nationwide, including fare levels by mode, transfer charges, treatment of intermodal fares, discounts for multitrip purchases, pricing of monthly passes, time of day differentials, and distance-based fares. Seventeen of the 20 systems (including MDTA) responded to the survey. The range of fare policies is summarized by category for the 17 transit agencies that responded. The implications of the results are also discussed.
