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). For more tips and farebox information including a “how-to-use” video, click here

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.
