Fare Facts:
A guide to regional transit fares
Fare Facts

On July 1, 2008, transit fares around the region increased to help the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) and North County Transit District (NCTD) overcome projected 2009 fiscal year budget shortfalls due to lower than expected state funding and high fuel costs.

These changes are reflected in an updated edition of 2008 Fare Facts, a guide to regional transit fares. Fare Facts is provided free as a helpful guide to fare information for the region’s transit services. Fare Facts also lists the different passes available to MTS and NCTD passengers, explains where tickets and passes can be purchased, and what fare promotions are available, among other things!

The revised 2008 Fare Facts can be found at transit centers around the region. Information also is available by dialing 511 from any phone or visiting

511 is a free phone and Web service that provides up-to-the minute information on schedule, route, and fare information for San Diego public transit services, carpool and vanpool referrals, bicycling information, traffic conditions, incidents and driving times, and more. 511 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. TTY/TDD service for persons with hearing impairments is available at (888) 722-4889.
