ORDINANCE NO. 2009-07


AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND MASTER ORDINANCE 2009, AS AMENDED,
TO MODIFY THE FARE COLLECTION POLICY
RESULTING FROM THE IMPLEMENTATION OF TRANSLINK® AND
THE NEW FAREBOXES ON GOLDEN GATE TRANSIT BUSES

November 20, 2009

THIS ORDINANCE is adopted with reference to the following facts and circumstances which are found and declared by the Board of Directors:

     
  1.
Over the past two years, with the implementation of TransLink® and the new fareboxes on Golden Gate Transit (GGT) buses, there have been significant changes on the way passenger fares are collected on GGT buses.
   
  2.
TransLink® and the new fareboxes on GGT buses provide District customers with means to pre-pay their fares so cash fare collection is not required as they board GGT buses.
   
  3.
As of July 1, 2009, TransLink®, “Smart Cards” and GFI Odyssey Farebox “Mag Stripe Value Cards” and “Period Passes” completely replaced the former means of prepaying bus fares; namely, books of 20 paper tickets, each valid for one bus ride between specific fare zones.
   
  4.
As a result of the implementation of these two projects, modifications to Master Ordinance 2009, are necessary.
     

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE, HIGHWAY AND TRANSPORTATION DISTRICT, AS FOLLOWS:
