Starting this Sunday, Foothill Transit is implementing revised fare structures and making service changes to several bus lines. Single trip bus fare will go from $1.25 to $1.50, though for riders paying with TAP cards, the fare remains $1.25.

Foothill is eliminating transfers, and instituting a new day pass that costs $5 for adults, or $2.50 for seniors. Monthly pass prices have lowered to $50 from $70.
