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.

REGISTRATION OPENS FOR JOINT MUNI AND BART 18-MONTH SENIORS DISABLED PILOT PROGRAM

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which operates the Municipal Railway (Muni), and the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) have announced the opening of registration for an 18-month joint pilot project to allow senior and disabled customers unlimited access to BART in San Francisco and all Muni transit services with the purchase of a single pass.
Interested seniors and persons with disabilities may enter a drawing to participate. The first phase of the pilot will begin February 2010; the registration deadline for those who wish to participate is November 30.
In order to participate in the pilot program, seniors and persons with disabilities must register for a random lottery by going to the SFMTA Web site at sfmta.com or by calling 311.
The current Muni Adult Fast Pass® allows unlimited BART access within the City of San Francisco and all regular transit services offered by Muni. The Senior/Disabled Pass Pilot will assess the functionality, popularity and potential costs of implementing a similar program for senior and disabled Muni customers. The SFMTA and BART are working together to develop a pass for this purpose. If deemed successful, the pass could be added to TransLink®, the regional transit smart card (www.translink.org).
To enter the first round of the lottery, a senior or disabled customer must register no later than November 30. Every six months during the pilot, 2,000 participants will be randomly selected to receive the Senior/Disabled Pilot Pass.
Senior and persons with disabilities will be required to demonstrate eligibility or verify their age. Pilot participants will be required to carry the pass as well as a valid form of identification when using the pass.
