Frequently Asked Questions
What is a SMART Eco-Pass?
The SMART 31-Day Pass is discounted pass good for unlimited rides for 31-consecutive days from the date of first use. The price is $135 per month for Adults and $67.50 per month for Seniors, Youth or Passengers with Disabilities.
What if I only want to commute on SMART occasionally?
If you don’t think you will use the SMART train regularly enough to justify a monthly pass purchase, you can elect to put eCash on their Clipper card to pay for individual rides.
E-Cash on a Clipper card can be used any time, on any transit system in the Bay Area, and is not limited to the month for which the pre-tax product was purchased.
