Youth Ride Free with PRONTO
Starting May 1, 2022, all riders 18 and under will be able to ride North County Transit District (NCTD)* and MTS services for FREE with a Youth PRONTO app account, or a Youth PRONTO card. The Youth Opportunity Pass is a pilot program, sponsored by the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and County of San Diego, through June 30, 2023.
To be eligible for the Youth Opportunity Pass, riders 18 and under must have a Youth PRONTO app account, or a Youth PRONTO card, and travel with proof of eligibility. (Riders 5 and under ride NCTD and MTS free at all times, and don’t need a card or proof of eligibility.)
You can request to change to a reduced fare card online using the MTS form below.
