Step 3: Paying Your Fare
Paying Your Fare
SamTrans accepts cash, tokens, tickets and the Clipper Card.
When inserting your fare into the farebox, use flat bills and drop coins one at-a-time to prevent jamming. If you insert more than the price of the fare, the farebox will issue a Change Card that can be used on future bus rides (Note: Change cards expire one year from date of issue and are non-refundable).

SamTrans offers a variety of fare products including Day passes and discounted tokens and Monthly passes. Youth, seniors, persons with disabilities and Medicare cardholders also receive a discount.
