SacRT Pre-Paid Ticket and Pass Exchange (April 1 through August 31, 2019)

June 10, 2019 SacRT in Community

Effective July 1, 2019, SacRT buses and light rail fare vending machines will no longer accept pre-paid tickets and passes with a June 30, 2019 expiration date. This year, SacRT staff started the ticket and pass exchange earlier, on Monday, April 1, 2019, in order to provide better customer service, shorter wait times and ample opportunity for staff to answer questions about the transition to Connect Card and ZipPass fare options. In addition, transferring the value on to electronic fare media eliminates the need for future paper ticket and pass exchanges.

Customers have the option to exchange current, unvalidated Basic and Discount single fare paper tickets or daily passes (June 30, 2019 expiration date) for the fare equivalent value on electronic media, Connect Card or ZipPass, the exchange also includes paper fare media. The pre-paid ticket and pass exchange ends on Saturday, August 31, 2019.

Customers can exchange their pre-paid tickets and passes at the SacRT Customer Service and Sales Center located at 1225 R Street (adjacent to the 13th Street Station). To make it more convenient for our customers, other exchange locations will be scheduled over the next couple of weeks at key light rail stations. Please check or call 916-321-BUSS (2877) for updates.
