Public Transit

Comprehensive Fare Ordinance

The SANDAG Board of Directors approved the region’s first Comprehensive Fare Ordinance encompassing fares charged on all public transit vehicles in San Diego County operated by Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) and the North County Transit District (NCTD) on March 24, 2006.

The Comprehensive Fare Ordinance consolidates the existing fare levels and regulations of MTS and NCTD into a single new SANDAG ordinance.

The Fare Ordinance is consistent with SANDAG Board Policy No. 029, Regional Fare Policy, which provides the regional framework for transit fares. All fare changes, including fare increases or changes in fare types, must be approved by the SANDAG Board of Directors. Public hearings will be held whenever fare changes are being considered.
