Transit Passes

ECO Discounted Transit Pass Program

The current retail price for an MTS Standard Pass is $72. We will offer a 16.1 % discount, which means that the passes for our program will be $60.40 per pass, a savings of $11.60 per pass. We will also offer Premium Express Passes at a 16.5 % discount for $83.50 per pass (they retail for $100).

The Downtown San Diego Partnership administers a discounted transit pass program in partnership with MTS. This program allows organizations with less than 400 participants to receive a discounted rate through the Partnership’s ECO Pass Contract with MTS.
