Buy Your Transit Fare with PRONTO

  • For the fastest service: Use your phone as your Trolley pass with the PRONTO app
  • Concertgoers can also load money to a PRONTO Card in advance online at, or at any Trolley ticket machine. MTS does not recommend fans buy one-way paper tickets, due to post game crowding at ticket machines for return-trips. Whenever possible, load $5 to a PRONTO Card, which covers a round-trip. PRONTO cards are available at all ticket machines (one-time $2 fee).
  • Riders must tap or scan PRONTO on a station validator before they board the Trolley.
