Rider Alert: Express 10-Ride Tickets Discontinued

Effective Saturday, June 30, 2018

SolTrans Express 10-Ride tickets are being discontinued. (Local 10-Ride tickets will still be available.) SolTrans will no longer sell Express 10-Ride tickets after June 30, 2018.

Express 10-Ride tickets purchased before June 30th will expire on July 31, 2018.
Please plan ahead accordingly and purchase only what you will use before the expiration date. All sales are final.

Other available fare payment options are as follows:  If you travel round trip 12 times per month or more, purchasing an Express 31-Day Pass for $118 will cost less than paying cash fare or using Express Day Passes.  If you travel with other transit agencies in the Bay Area, you can load a SolTrans Express 31-Day Pass to your Clipper card for ease of travel.

If you travel round-trip occasionally, an Express Day Pass for $10 is your best bet.  It can be purchased from the fare box or several in advance from one of our vendors or the Vallejo Transit Center Ticket Office.

For an occasional one way trip, cash fare is the least expensive choice.
