Proposed 2021 Fare Changes
The Metropolitan Transit System (MTS), North County Transit District (NCTD), and the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) are proposing amendments to transit fares in 2021. If approved, these changes would take effect when the Compass Card system is replaced by the new regional PRONTO fare system in mid-2021.
Two fare adjustment scenarios are under consideration and both scenarios would:
• Reduce one-way cash fares for Youth to align with the discounted Senior/Disabled/Medicare cash fares.
• Increase Adult one-way cash fares on most bus and light rail services from $2.50 to $2.75.
• Include “best-fare” capabilities for 1-day and Monthly passes (except NCTD COASTER) and eliminate the 30-day pass.
• Increase MTS Access and NCTD LIFT fares from $5.00 to $5.50.
Scenario B includes small increases to monthly products. Proposed changes allow MTS and NCTD to offer “best-value” fares. Three public meetings will be held to get public input. If approved by MTS, NCTD, and SANDAG boards, the new fares would be implemented after May 1, 2021.
