If the cost of driving seems high, consider taking the bus.

A one-way fare on Tri Delta Transit fixed route buses is just $2.00, or you can purchase a 20-Ride Pass for only $33. For even greater savings, purchase a 31-Day Pass good for unlimited rides on all Tri Delta Transit buses (except paratransit buses) for 31 consecutive days, for just $57.

If you use a Clipper Card and load cash to your Clipper Card, Clipper calculates fare for you so you always pay the lowest fare. Clipper automatically deducts the appropriate fare each time you board the bus. Board more than one bus on the same day and Clipper automatically calculates the fare for an unlimited ride Day Pass. Once the Day Pass is achieved, your card is not charged for additional rides so you automatically pay the lowest fare! You can also load 31-Day Passes to your Clipper Card.
