About the Senior/Disabled Pilot Pass Program
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board of Directors and the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) Board of Directors have approved a pilot program to allow senior and disabled customers unlimited access to BART in San Francisco and on all Muni transit services with the purchase of a Muni Senior/Disabled Pilot Pass. All fare gates operated by BART within San Francisco will be programmed to accept the Senior/Disabled Pilot Pass and the pass will be accepted on all Muni vehicles. If successful, it is expected that long-term implementation will be made available on TransLink®.
What Advantages Are There to Being in This Program?
Previous to establishing the current program, only Muni Adult Fast Pass purchasers were offered unlimited use of BART within the City and County of San Francisco along with all regular transit services available on Muni. The current program will test the functionality, popularity and potential costs of implementing a similar program for senior and disabled Muni customers.
