Coast RTA is please to announce new and improved service with the installation of electronic fare boxes starting October 23, 2010. These electronic fare boxes automatically validate coins and bills, issue electronic change, process magnetic fare cards and provide a customer display.

Important Tips:

  • Let the driver know before inserting money if you are a student, disabled, or a senior citizen.
  • You do not need exact change. If you do not have exact change, the fare box will issue a change card to be used towards a future ride on any Coast RTA bus with an electronic fare box. If you do not want a change card, please use exact change.
  • If you need a transfer, ask the driver when you pay your fare. Transfers are good for six hours and must be used on a different route than originated.
  • Your pass, card, or transfer must be in good condition to be read by the fare box. The fare box may not accept damaged cards or passes. Therefore:
  • Do not bend your pass, card or transfer
  • Keep cards away from heat
  • Do not leave cards in the sun
  • Do not get the cards wet
  • Do not place them next to electronic devices such as cell phones
