Transfer Policy And Passes
Transfer Slips/Transferring Buses
Transfer slips are no longer issued on Tri Delta Transit buses. YOU CAN STILL TRANSFER BETWEEN TRI DELTA TRANSIT BUSES. To do so you must have a valid 24-Hour Pass, a valid 31-Day Pass or pay an additional single ride fare. See the complete Transfer Policy at the bottom of the page.
If you need to transfer between Tri Delta Transit buses or if you will be making a round-trip, your best option is to purchase a 24-Hour Pass. If you ride frequently, consider purchasing a 31-Day Pass or an East Bay Value Pass for even greater discounts.
To purchase a 24-Hour Pass on the bus, just ask the driver for a 24-Hour Pass when you pay your fare. Exact fare is not required; drivers will issue a credit ticket upon request.
Once you validate a 24-Hour Pass, your pass is valid for the 24 hour time period printed on the pass. Just swipe your validated 24-Hour Pass in the farebox each time you board a Tri Delta Transit bus and you can ride as many buses as much as you want.
24-Hour Passes and 31-Day Passes are not valid on Dial-a-Ride.
Transferring to/from County Connection (or other agency) buses
New Inter-Agency Transfer
You can still transfer to a County Connection bus for free at shared bus stops. Just ask the driver for an Inter-Agency Transfer. The Inter-Agency Transfer is issued by the fare box and will allow you to transfer to neighboring transit agency buses at shared bus stops only. The Inter-Agency Transfer will not allow you to transfer to another Tri Delta Transit bus. To transfer from another agency’s bus to a Tri Delta Transit bus at a shared bus stop, just get a transfer from the other agency’s bus driver... same as always.
