VTA fares can be paid with cash, Clipper cards, or EZfare 📱 app. All monthly passes are available on Clipper cards only.

Single ride fare paid with Clipper or EZfare includes 2 hour free transfers. An upgrade fare will apply when transferring from a local route or light rail to an express route.

Day pass works as a daily fare cap for riders with Clipper cards. Riders pay a single ride rate until the fare cap is reached, then no additional fares will be deducted. Day pass is available on EZfare as well. Day pass is not available with cash.
