Goodbye Compass - Hello PRONTO!!
Starting [tomorrow] September 1, San Diego’s Metro Transit System and North County Transit District can use the new regional fare system, PRONTO.
PRONTO will replace the Compass Card and Cloud systems entirely, offering riders a better payment experience when choosing transit. Compass ends today but to make the transit transition more smoothly PRONTO participants will ride free in September!
Transit folks know riders have lots of questions about the transition from Compass to PRONTO. CLICK HERE to read the pesky small print.
--Earn-as-you-go to get the best fare, every time! Load money into your PRONTO account or onto your card, then scan or tap with each trip you make to earn a Day or Monthly Pass as you ride. (COASTER excluded - will still require upfront payment for Day and Monthly Passes.)
--One-way fares on PRONTO will be valid for unlimited transfers within two hours of activation. --Get real-time account management online (no more waiting up to 48 hours for passes to be available)
--A wider retail network to purchase and reload PRONTO cards
--Get the PRONTO App by searching for "PRONTO San Diego" or by using the links below.
