Hello PRONTO – The New Way to Pay for Transit
New PRONTO transit fare system launches September 1!
Starting September 1, transit riders can use the new regional fare system, PRONTO. With PRONTO, simply add value to your account and tap your PRONTO card or scan your mobile app every time you ride. Just add value and go!
PRONTO will replace the Compass Card and Cloud systems. All NCTD riders need to switch from Compass to PRONTO in September 2021. Compass will be discontinued on October 1, 2021.
What’s New with PRONTO:
- One-way fares on PRONTO will be valid for unlimited transfers within two hours of activation.
- Get real-time account management online (no more waiting up to 48 hours for passes to be available)
- Earn-as-you-go to get the best fare, every time! Load money into your PRONTO account or onto your card, then scan or tap with each trip you make to earn a Day or Monthly Pass as you ride. (COASTER excluded – will still require upfront payment for Day and Monthly Passes.)
