GGT Zone Map

Advise the driver of your final destination when boarding the bus. If you need a transfer to continue your trip, be sure to ask for one prior to paying your fare. A Change Card will be issued if you are due more than $1 in change, but you must inform your driver before putting your money in the farebox. This Change Card can be used on future GGT bus trips.

GGT adult cash one-way bus fares vary according to the length of the trip and number of Fare Zones crossed. GGT adult cash bus fares are shown below. For Golden Gate Ferry Fares click here.

How to Determine Your Bus Fare

Using the fare zone map at left and the applicable fare table (adult, youth, local, etc.) below, locate your FROM and TO travel zones to determine your one-way fare. For example, if you want to travel from San Rafael (Zone 3) to San Francisco (Zone 1), locate San Rafael (in the left-hand column of table) and then look horizontally across the table to where Zone 3 intersects Zone 1 (indicated with white background).  Your one-way adult cash fare would be $6.25.
