Caltrain to Host Meetings on Potential Changes to Monthly Pass

On Wednesday, November 9, Caltrain will host a virtual public meeting about Caltrain’s Monthly Pass, with a Public Hearing scheduled for Monday, November 21.

Currently, the monthly pass, which is exclusively available on a Clipper Card, is only valid for travel in the defined zones determined at purchase. Traveling outside of those zones requires a paper upgrade pass for each additional zone. The proposed change would allow pass holders to travel however many zones their pass allows, regardless of where they board, meaning a two-zone pass would allow someone to travel from Zone 1 to Zone 2, or from Zone 4 to Zone 5. Any additional zones traveled above the number of zones purchased would be subject to a zone upgrade charge at tap off and automatically charged to the customer’s Clipper Card. Pass holders would also be required to tap on and off on every trip.
