Caltrain fares are based on the number of zones that are partially or wholly traveled through by the passenger.

Passengers must have a valid ticket before boarding the train or be subject to citation. Please show ticket or Clipper® card to the conductor or fare inspector upon request. They also may request proof of age or eligibility.

The Caltrain Board of Directors is considering changes to its fare structure in order to keep the system adequately funded and in a state of good repair.

The Board invites public comment on the following potential changes at its August 1 meeting. A final proposal will be presented for Board action on September 5, 2019.
