9. Recommendation from a CAC Committee (Discussion/Action)
WHEREAS BART currently allows vendors to sell multiple discount tickets without verification of eligibility status; and
WHEREAS A pilot project greater than 90 days selling 2,000 BART enabled tickets to a market base of 35,000 senior and disabled riders would prove confusing and unfair,
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT, The SFMTA CAC recommends that the SFMTA Board reject any agreement on senior and disabled fast pass use on BART that requires SFMTA to apply more stringent eligibility verification processes than BART itself applies. The SFMTA CAC recommends that any pilot program be limited to no more than 90 days before all senior and disabled fast passes are enabled for unlimited BART rides within San Francisco.
The SFMTA CAC further recommends that, to address concerns about fraud, that proof of payment inspectors be asked to take extra care in verifying eligibility of people holding senior and disabled as well as youth passes and that SFMTA collect data on citations issued for fraudulent use of these fare instruments.
On motion to adopt the senior and disabled fast pass on BART recommendation: Approved. (Ayes - Burns, Downey, Ferrario, Humphrey, Murphy, Perez, Riessen, Rolfe and Wieser)(Absent - Cimento, Drennen [departed at 7:10 p.m.], Vincent and Weaver)
