How 10-Ride Tickets Work on Train-Bus Connections
Many passengers have asked us to explain how 10-ride tickets work – specifically, how rides are deducted when there are multiple trip segments. The short answer is that as long as you’re traveling in the same direction, there will only be one ride deducted from your 10-ride ticket, regardless of how many trip segments are involved.
On a trip from Sacramento to San Francisco, for example, we always deduct one ride from your ticket, on the train from Sacramento to Emeryville. The bus driver from Emeryville to San Francisco will still need to scan your ticket in order to check you on board; however, this scan will not cause an additional ride to be deducted. Likewise, on your return trip to Sacramento, your ticket will be scanned on both the bus to Emeryville and on the train to Sacramento; however, only one ride will be deducted on the first segment, which is the bus to Emeryville.
So, remember, having your ticket scanned does not necessarily mean we are deducting a ride from your 10-ride ticket. Train conductors and bus drivers are required to scan the tickets of all passengers, but a ride will be deducted only if it is your first segment of travel.
