Santa Barbara to continue Amtrak transfer program

Posted on November 19, 2008

The Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District’s (MTD) board of directors voted to continue the Transit Transfer Pass program between Amtrak trains and MTD buses, which began in January of 2006, for another three years.

The pass was created for visitors traveling to the Santa Barbara area aboard Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner. Passengers may ask a train conductor for a Transit Transfer pass before exiting the train. The Conductor will issue two paper tickets per person, each punched with the current month and day. These passes may then be used as bus fare on the day marked on the ticket.

At MTD, the Transit Transfer Pass may be used as regular bus fare on any local MTD route, including the electric shuttles, but is not valid on regional service, such as MTD’s Valley Express.

The pass has proven popular with visitors and is promoted through the Air Pollution Control District’s Santa Barbara Car Free program.
