How to Pay

Riders have many choices when paying their fares. Fares can be paid on board the bus with cash, but contactless payment is more efficient and reduces bus boarding times—getting riders to their destinations faster. Contactless fare payment options include the Connect Card and purchasing fare with the ZipPass mobile app

Connect Card

Connect Card is the Sacramento region’s electronic transit fare payment system and is accepted by most transit agencies in the Sacramento region. Connect Card readers are installed on all Yolobus and YOUR Ride vehicles. To pay, tag the Connect Card reader with your card upon boarding the bus.

Cash

All Yolobus and YOUR Ride vehicles have fareboxes to accept cash payments. Exact change is required as our bus operators don’t carry change or provide refunds. Passes on Connect Card can be purchased with cash at the Yolobus Customer Service Center.
