📣 Due to COVID-19 national emergency, many transit agencies have reduced or suspended service in response to drop in ridership and various local stay-at-home orders. Some agencies waive fares and allow rear door boarding to accommodate social distancing. Route information on this site may not reflect these sudden and temporary service changes. Check Twitter feeds for transit agencies for current service updates prior to travel. 😷 Face covering or mask is advised (and may be required at some agencies) onboard transit vehicles.

  • One way ticket (valid for 4 hours throughout the system)
  • Excursion pass (valid only on light rail for 8 hours)
  • Day pass (local buses and light rail)

Ticket machines can also add pass products or e-cash values onto existing Clipper cards.

Ticket machines accept:

  • Cash (change provided)
  • Day pass tokens

Ticket machines will eventually accept credit and ATM cards in the future.

Passengers must have a valid ticket or pass when riding the light rail.
