NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

IMPLEMENTATION OF A FARE SURCHARGE FOR
EXTENDED INTER-COUNTY PARATRANSIT SERVICE


The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District will hold a Public Hearing on Thursday, August 12, 2004, at 9:30 a.m., in the Board Room, Administration Building, Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza, San Francisco, CA, for the purpose of receiving public comment relative to the implementation of a fare surcharge of $0.50, for Marin County extended inter-county paratransit service.


In recognition of the Districts limited transit financial resources, the District proposes establishing a $0.50 fare surcharge for paratransit trips that begin or end beyond three-quarters of a mile in Marin County on either side of a non-commute fixed route bus or that is outside of the comparable fixed route bus service hours, to maintain consistency with paratransit fare policy recently established by the Marin County Transit District.


A staff report on this proposal was presented to the Finance-Auditing Committee on July 8, 2004. An additional staff report for the public hearing will be available after August 6, 2004, and may be obtained from Janet S. Tarantino, Secretary of the District, Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District, P.O. Box 9000, Presidio Station, San Francisco, CA, 94129-0601, or by using TDD California Relay Service, 800-735-2929 or at http://www.goldengate.org/organization/publichearings.htm l.

Box 9000, Presidio Station, San Francisco, CA, 94129-0601. Comments may also be sent by e-mail to publichearing@goldengate.org. Written comments should be received no later than August 12, 2004.
