Now: Reload your VCbuspass card at a local retailer

As part of VCTC’s continuing efforts to make riding the bus easier and more convenient, riders can now reload their VCbuspass cards at over a dozen retail locations across the county.

Riders can use cash or a debit or credit card to reload their VCbuspass cards. Only stored value can be added at the retail locations. Retailers cannot sell 31-day passes.

A full list of retailers is available on the VCTC website. Retailers include certain 7-Eleven, CVS Pharmacy, Family Dollar and Walgreens stores.

VCbuspass is a contactless fare collection system that allows passengers to pay for fares on any of Ventura County’s regional bus systems. With VCbuspass, riders can buy bus passes online and use them directly from their mobile devices or use a reloadable smartcard when boarding buses.

The VCbuspass system is installed on over 160 vehicles across eight transit operator fleets, including Camarillo Area Transit, Gold Coast Transit District, Moorpark City Transit, Ojai Trolley, Simi Valley Transit, Thousand Oaks Transit, Valley Express Bus, and VCTC Intercity transit service. Passengers may buy 31-day passes or add stored value that lets riders pay as they go.
