1. Get Your Connect Card and Load Fare

The card will be mailed to you within 5-7 business days with the fare already loaded on the card, ready for immediate use.

Note: Only full fare (non-discount) cards can be ordered online. Discount cards are available for eligible riders only and must be obtained in-person at the counter. Contact the Yuba-Sutter Transit administrative office at (530) 634-6880 for more information. 

At the Counter - If you’re ready right now to take advantage of all the benefits and convenience of the new Connect Card system, come in to our offices at 2100 B Street in Marysville and get your card. Our normal office hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday (closed 12 to 1:00pm for lunch). We can accept cash, check, transit check or credit/debit at our counter for loading fare on a new Connect Card.

Note: If you receive your pass directly from your employer or in the mail, stay tuned!  The Connect Card system will soon support corporate account management and your employer will have the ability to set you up with a Connect Card.
