The Connect Card is the Sacramento region's new way to pay transit fares for both bus and light rail. The reloadable smart card has an embedded computer chip that can store cash value, daily or monthly passes and discount fare. It also includes online account management, added security and loss protection. With the Connect Card, only one card is needed to ride all nine transit systems in the Sacramento region. Effective January 1, Folsom Stage Line will discontinue the sales of paper monthly passes and single ride tickets in favor of the Connect Card system. Monthly passes and cash value for one-way fares can now be loaded to a Connect Card online or in-person at a participating transit agency or retailer. In Folsom, Connect Cards are available at the City Hall Customer Service Counter at 50 Natoma Street between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
