Tired of having a physical card that can get lost or damaged? Try Token Transit. It's a mobile bus pass that stays on your phone. It's attached to your phone number, so if you get a new phone, your pass will stay with you.
ALL DAY PASS - For $5.00 an All Day Pass can be purchased directly from the driver for unlimited access to the entire system for the day. Be sure to tell the driver you want an All Day Pass BEFORE putting your money in the farebox.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FARE TYPES?
If you're in one city (i.e. Oroville, Chico, Gridley/Biggs, or the Paradise/Magalia area) and your trip will stay in that city, you'll need local fare. If you are going from one city to another, you'll need regional fare.
UPGRADE from LOCAL TO REGIONAL FARE If you have a LOCAL ticket, pass, or transfer, it can be upgraded to a REGIONAL fare just by paying the difference:
Starting April 1, 2022 you must show the driver your discount eligibility card in order to use discount fare. *Discount fare card application can be found here. There is a $3.00 fee for the card and it lasts for five (5) years.
*Please note that Value Cards and Cash are the only accepted forms of payment when traveling in supplemental zones.
We have discontinued the $50 Value Card and will no longer be selling it. You're welcome to order multiple $25 Value Cards, 2 Ride Passes, pay with cash, or use the Mobile Pass to purchase additional rides.

DISCOUNT FARE ELIGIBILITY
In order to improve efficiency, B-Line has implemented a Discount Fare Eligibility Card that you may need to show when purchasing fare and/or boarding the bus. Discount Fare Cards have a one-time fee of $3.00 in order to be issued, and that is payable with cash, check, or money order.
The application will need to be filled out completely and returned with the fee and one form of supplemental verification. We accept the following:
Government Issued ID showing picture and birthdate (only if requesting card as age 65+)
ADA Paratransit Authorization Letter
If this letter is issued by any agency other than B-Line we reserve the right to follow up with that agency to confirm eligibility.
Discount Fare Card or Document from Another Transit Agency
Medi-Care Card/award letter
Social Security Disability award letter
Valid Disabled Veteran’s card
DMV permanent handicap placard receipt showing the name of the owner
The name listed must match the name on this application.
If providing a letter from your physician, it must be on letterhead and signed by the doctor. B-Line reserves the right to follow up on any letter provided for this purpose.
Obvious physical impairments do not need verification if applying in person (ie: paraplegics, amputees)
If applying in person, a photo will be taken at time of submittal.
If applying via mail, a clear headshot photo needs to be sent in with your application.
