BART to temporarily reduce ticket prices

It is going to be a bit cheaper to ride BART, at least for a little while.

The BART board voted Thursday to reduce fares by 3 percent -- but for just four months.

BART says it wants to reward customers for their patience through recent fare increases and service cuts since it now has a $4 million surplus.

The fare reduction goes into effect in August or September.
