NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
TO RECEIVE PUBLIC COMMENT ON
PROPOSED CHANGES TO DISTRICT POLICY REGARDING
QUALIFYING AGE LIMITS TO YOUTH DISCOUNT FARES

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District (District) will hold a Public Hearing to receive public comment, as follows:

Thursday, February 19, 2015 at 9:30 a.m.
Board Room, Administration Building
Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza, San Francisco, CA

In an effort to coordinate the eligibility age for Youth discount fares throughout the Bay Area, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s (MTC) regional Clipper coordination initiative (MTC Resolution No. 3866, MTC’s Transit Coordination Implementation Plan) endorsed a recommendation that all participating operators move towards a consistent standard for Youth fares, which encompasses ages 5 through 18. For many years, the District has provided discounts to Youth ages 6 through 18, and waived fares for children ages 5 and under (when accompanied by an adult). The proposed change affects the District’s bus and ferry customers traveling with children between ages 5 and 6 years, and will charge this age group the appropriate Youth fare.

Reports regarding these proposals may be obtained from the Secretary of the District, Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District, P.O. Box 9000, Presidio Station, San Francisco, CA, 94129-0601, at www.goldengate.org/board/2015/mtgs-public-h.php, or by email at districtsecretary@goldengate.org, by phone at (415) 923-2223, by fax at 415-923-2013, or by using TDD California Relay Service at 711.

Public comments will be received at the public hearing or may be presented in writing to the Secretary of the District at the above address. Comments may also be sent by email to publichearing@goldengate.org. Written comments should be received no later than Thursday, February 19, 2015, at 4:30 p.m.
