In accordance with the Health Officer of the County of Santa Barbara's Health Officer Order No. 2020-10, face coverings are required to be worn when using public transit in Santa Barbara County. Masks are required when boarding, riding and disembarking from all Clean Air Express buses.
Onboard Credit Card Payment
The Clean Air Express has been hard at work to enable customers to pay fares electronically onboard the bus. In partnership with the California State Transportation Agency, devices are scheduled to be installed by the end of January. These devices will allow riders to tap their credit card, phone or smartwatch and pay for their ride without having to use a traditional transit pass. The Clean Air Express is looking for volunteers to help us test the new system before it is rolled out to all customers. If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
