Hey! When you were talking about Muni’s fare increase plans, you made it sound like Muni was saying that all riders who wanted to use Muni or ride Cable cars or ride express buses would need to do is buy the $70 “A” Adult Fast Pass.

But Streetsblog is saying “Instead of a single premium pass allowing access to any Muni or BART vehicle within the city, each will be its own entity, costing $70 per month.”

Did Muni change its plans, or did you guys fuck it up?

Jesus Christ, H, do you kiss your mother with that mouth? Yup, last month we quoted the MTA’s Judson True as saying:

“Yes, under the proposal the $70 “A” Adult Fast Pass (as opposed to the $60 “M” Muni-only pass) would be required for cable cars and express buses.”

So we went back to True with H’s question. Spokesperson Kristin Holland replied confirming that the MTA’s plans remain unchanged, and that “the same pass used on BART will be used on Cable Cars and peak hour express.” So, H, you can relax.
