Go Ventura Smartcard Program Ending June 30th

The Go Ventura Smartcard Bus Pass system has reached its life expectancy - the system equipment and software can no longer be replaced or repaired. As of July 1, 2015, the Go Ventura Smartcard will no longer be accepted on any bus system in the County. Beginning May 2015, the new VCTC bus passes will only be good on VCTC (VISTA) buses; however, we are working toward developing a replacement multi-agency bus pass.
