Value Cards

Value Cards are NO LONGER being sold; however, they will continue to be accepted as fare payment until further notice.

Marin Transit Value Cards ($18 and $36) provide a 10% discount off the local bus cash fare when riding Golden Gate Transit local bus routes. They are valid for six months from the date of first use and are nonrefundable and not exchangeable. They should be kept clean and dry, and should not be folded, scratched, torn, written on, or laminated. Customers can get the same 10% discount when traveling locally within Marin by using a Clipper card.

Please note: Marin Transit Value Cards are not for travel between Marin and San Francisco or Sonoma counties; nor can they be used for travel within Sonoma or San Francisco counties.
