More Money For Cable Car Rides

On July 1st, the cost for a single ride on a San Francisco cable car will be $6, not $5 like it is now. The last time the cable car fare was increased was in 2005, when the city spiked the cost from $3, a 67% increase. "There is no doubt that our recent budget deficits have required us to make tough choices that we do not take lightly," Muni chief Nathaniel Ford said in a prepared statement. "We are working hard to ensure the financial stability of this agency while providing the highest possible quality of service to all our transportation customers." [SF Gate]
