Fares

 

SunLine Cash Fares

Fare collection resumed on Sunday, May 2, 2021. As of May 2nd, passengers are now asked to board through the front door. Please continue to wear a mask at all times while riding the bus and at bus stops. 

Information about Resuming Fare Collection: SunLine Transit Agency resumed fare collection starting Sunday, May 2, 2021, following an emergency suspension of collecting fares that started March 17, 2020 in response to the pandemic. Fare collection was temporarily halted due to the onset of COVID-19. By suspending fares, riders were able to enter at the rear of the bus as opposed to the front of the bus, eliminating contact with the driver at the farebox. This allowed SunLine to continue transporting essential workers and to keep Coachella Valley moving forward. SunLine is taking many steps to protect the health and safety of our riders, employees and community. While fare collection has resumed, contactless fare payment is available through the Token Transit app. This easy-to-use app allows riders to purchase passes ahead of time and have them on their phone. More information is available at www.SunLine.org/Mobile. In addition to contactless fare payment, SunLine has installed transparent safety partitions on all buses and paratransit vehicles. This provides a critical defense barrier between operators and passengers using large, heavy-duty safety glass.  Other features that allow the SunLine to safely and confidently collect fares again include strict enforcement of the federal mask mandate for riders, regular cleaning and disinfecting of all transit vehicles, and SunLine’s myStop® Mobile app, which shows the number of riders on any given bus in real time to allow for social distancing.
