What is Connect Card?

Well, it’s the region's new electronic transit fare payment system. You can now purchase your transit fare online, never have to carry exact change again and use the card on more than one agency! Participating agencies include Sacramento Regional Transit, El Dorado Transit, Etran, Folsom Stage Line, Placer County Transit, Roseville Transit, SCT/Link, Yolobus, Yuba-Sutter Transit.

How do I get my Connect Card?

Go through the Get A Card process where you will be asked to create an account and buy transit fare for your new Connect Card! You will receive an e-mail confirming your order and when you receive your card in the mail 3-5 business days later you're ready to ride!

Discount Rider

If you are eligible for discount fare (as a senior, student, or person with disabilities), you must visit your primary Customer Service Center to obtain a new photo ID printed on a Connect Card. Your primary Customer Service Center is the Transit Agency you will be riding most often.

Download and complete both pages of the Discount Card application (View the Spanish version). Bring your completed application and proof of eligibility (required) to your primary participating Customer Service Center listed below. If you do not have a computer or printer, you can fill out the application upon arrival. All eligible discount riders must apply in-person.
