to vote on june 13th, about a fare increase and future hikes. they want to see the fare increase, and regular fare increases. i approved that concept two years ago, when i was new on the board. over the last two years, i have not seen any improvement, i am looking for. >> reporter: could cost riders up to $.40 extra each day, each way. the health of b.a.r.t. as a whole is at stake. >> this actual money from the fare adjustment is going to go for nutrient, one of the most popular things. >> reporter: these come like clockwork on b.a.r.t., they are part of a bigger plan to expand service and put nutrients into the system. >> it makes us one of the top transit agencies in terms of fiscal solvency. i am not really sure
