PRONTO is the NCTD and MTS regional fare payment system.
Riders can use the PRONTO app or a PRONTO card to ride NCTD buses and trains. Simply load money to your PRONTO card or app account, then tap or scan every time you ride! Riders must tap their card or scan the app at validators located on board buses or on SPRINTER and COASTER station platforms before each trip. COASTER riders must also tap off to avoid being charged the 3-Zone fare.
Get the PRONTO App by searching for “PRONTO San Diego” in the Apple or Google Play stores, or use the links on this page. To get a PRONTO card, go to any COASTER or SPRINTER station ticket machine, any NCTD Customer Service Center, or find a retail location near you at RidePRONTO.com. Riders with a PRONTO card are encouraged to register their card online at RidePRONTO.com, over the phone with PRONTO Support (619-595-5636) or in-person at any NCTD Customer Service Center. Registering your PRONTO card is the only way to protects its balance if the card gets lost or stolen.
SPRINTER/BREEZE Monthly Pass
The SPRINTER/BREEZE Monthly Pass is $59 for adults and for those qualifying for senior, disabled or Medicare discounted fares.
This Monthly Pass gives customers unlimited rides and transfers on the SPRINTER rail and BREEZE bus services all month (not valid on COASTER trains or MTS transit services).
Note: The discounted monthly SPRINTER/BREEZE pass must be pre-purchased and is therefore not available for fare capping. The pass allows for unlimited rides on SPRINTER and BREEZE for the corresponding month.
