Benefits of transitioning to the new Ventra Card include some fare policy changes:
- New 30-Day Premium Pass will be available for Express Routes
- The 10-Ride Plus Ticket will be replaced by the Ventra Card, allowing you to add the amount of transit value you need.
- The Student Haul Pass will be replaced by the 30-Day Reduced Fare Pass, with no change in price and flexibility to begin 30-day pass period when desired.
- Transfer Cards will no longer be issued to customers paying with cash as of December 15th. Ventra Card users save money by continuing to offer 25¢ transfers.
Look for Pace staff meeting riders during the transition period through December. For more information, please visit PaceBus.com/Ventra
