BART fares will rise an average of 19 cents, or 5.2 percent, starting Jan. 1.
A one-way trip from Pittsburg to the San Francisco Airport, for example, will rise by 60 cents from $11.05 to $11.65. The price for a trip from Walnut Creek to the Embarcadero Station in San Francisco will jump a quarter from $4.85 to $5.10.
The fare hike is part of the agency's regularly scheduled inflation-based increase program established in 2003.
The agency's nine-member elected board has earmarked the estimated $325 million in additional fare proceeds through 2020 to pay for new railcars, improvements at its Hayward maintenance yard and a new train control system.
"BART is required to come up with a portion of funding for many of our capital projects in order to qualify to receive extra money from other sources," said agency spokeswoman Alicia Trost.
