SamTrans fare policy is a collection of principles that orient fare-related decisions to a set of strategic goals, which are typically outlined in a guiding document, such as a strategic plan. A fare structure (Codified Tariff) is the collection of various fare products for sale and their prices. Transit agencies seek to align their fare structures with their established fare policies. The SamTrans Fare Policy is intended to assist the San Mateo County Transit District (District) in balancing several competing priorities when considering changes to the existing fare structure, in a way that is consistent with the SamTrans Strategic Plan.
