Use Stored Value with One-Way Passes!
Tap your Compass Card on the station validator and the appropriate one-way fare will be deducted. Do not tap off at destination station.
Tap your Compass Card on the bus farebox and the appropriate one-way fare will be deducted. A new one-way fare will be deducted when transferring to another bus or rail route. Do not tap off when exiting vehicle.
Tap your card on the station’s validator once before AND once after riding the COASTER. The appropriate one-way fare will be deducted depending on the number of zones you travel. If you do not tap after riding, a three-zone fare will automatically be deducted. No refunds will be issued. A transfer to NCTD BREEZE or SPRINTER is allowed within two hours of purchase. No transfer to MTS Bus, Rapid or Trolley is allowed.
Follow the directions above for each mode you ride to deduct one-way fares. When making several one-way trips you may want to purchase a Regional Day Pass, a Premium Regional Day Pass, or a COASTER Regional Day Pass to save money.
