    “Caltrans” should be “Caltrain”.

    According to the original proposal, SamTrans would eliminate premium fare to and from San Francisco, but under the revised proposal the agency approved yesterday, the premium would be retained but simplified (because the foregone revenue is too significant). So under the new plan, the fare for any route into downtown SF would be regular local fare (to be $2.25) and $4.00 (no increase) for any route leaving downtown SF (applies on 292, 397, and KX). The two way express fares for SF would be eliminated for operational reasons (it requires northbound bus driver to check payment for express fare at SFO and require Clipper riders to exit at front of bus after tagging a second time to pay for the difference.)
