The city of Santa Clarita will restructure its transit fares for both local and commuter routes starting Sunday, Aug 1.

Local transfers are being replaced by a "local day pass" which allows riders to travel on Santa Clarita Transit as many times as they would like during an operational day.

The cost of the local day pass is $2.50. The single local route fare will remain $1.00 and the reduced fare will continue to be free. Local monthly passes will be raised from $25 per month to $30 per month.

"The new fare structure offers more options for our riders, whether they use our local or commuter service," Mayor Laurene Weste said. "Our bus fare is lower than most other agencies, making our transit system accessible to everyone in our community."

Single rides on commuter routes will be increased by 25 cents. The fare for the North Hollywood Route 757, the newest Santa Clarita Transit commuter route, will remain at the same rate of $2.50.

Reduced fare rates will also remain the same. Monthly commuter passes will be increased an average amount of $25, depending on the route and type of pass selected.
