Proposed Fare Modification
The last time fares were increased was in 2009, nearly ten (10) years ago. The current proposal will increase the one-way cash fare to $2.50 (for local and express routes) and eliminate paper passes. However, a one-way fare on Clipper will remain at $2.00 and passengers will continue to benefit from the $3.75 Day Pass and Monthly Local/Express Passes, all available on Clipper. For complete details of all changes, follow the link below.
County Connection will make minor adjustments to several bus routes effective June 11, 2017 to improve system efficiency.
Routes 9, 18, 20, 316
NO TIME CHANGES, but maps are updated to reflect the long term detour around DVC.
The arrival time at WC BART on the trip leaving Hillcrest at 6:25AM is adjusted to arrive at BART at 7:45 AM.
Revised summer schedule.
