Discounted fares and passes are available for those who qualify. Youth (ages 5-18), seniors (ages 65+), and persons with disabilities receive 50% off the adult cash fare. Proof of eligibility may be requested when you ride.

Youth and Senior Clipper cards are also available and automatically provide the discounted rate. Learn more about Youth Passes or Senior Clipper cards.

Seniors must have a valid Medicare Card, DMV ID card/license, or senior ID from another California transit service.

Persons with disabilities must have a DMV Disabled Placard ID, RTC card, Medicare card, or ID card for persons with disabilities from another transit service. Personal service assistants are eligible for 50% off the adult cash fare only when accompanying a person with disabilities who has an attendant logo on his/her RTC Discount Card.

Regional Transit Connection (RTC) Discount Card

The RTC card is available to qualified persons with disabilities. The card makes it easier for you to demonstrate your eligibility for reduced fares on fixed-route transit, bus, rail and ferry systems throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The RTC card does not determine eligibility for paratransit services.

Applications for the RTC Discount ID Card are accepted at San Francisco Bay Area transit agency locations and forwarded to a central processing office, where application information is verified. Qualified applicants are then mailed the new RTC card.

To apply, please complete an application form and bring it to the Customer Service Center at the San Rafael Transit Center, Monday - Friday, 7 am to 6 pm, or call 415-455-2000.
