Changes to Station Ticket Sales Policy revision effective 9/15/15
  • Change limitation to $20
  • Exact cash preferred 

Tickets are available at many ACE Station locations or approved ACE vendors. Tickets are always available 24-hours a day online HERE. In the event that no ticket sales are available at departure stations, contact a member of Customer Service prior to boarding for assistance.

There are four ticket types available for purchase:
  • One-way
  • Round-trip
  • 20-ride (valid for 20 one-way rides or 10 round-trip rides)
  • Monthly (good from the 1st to the last of the month)

Tickets purchased online (i.e. passengers boarding with a printed "Instant Tickets") have an expiration.
  • A one-way "Instant Ticket" is valid for 24 hours from the date of travel.
  • A round-trip "Instant Ticket" is valid for 24 hours from the date of travel.
Instant tickets are not valid as fare with connecting transit partners with the exception of the ACE shuttles at the Pleasanton and Great America stations.

Only one-way and round-trip tickets purchased online from our website are available for immediate printing as "Instant Tickets."  All ticket types may be sent via United States Postal Service at no additional charge or by certified mail for an additional fee. 

When purchasing non-instant tickets online and requesting delivery by regular or certified mail, please allow 1 day for processing and 2-5 days for shipping.

ACE is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged tickets. Tickets will not be refunded or replaced.

Tickets can be purchased and/or picked up at the Stockton, Lathrop, Tracy, and Pleasanton stations.

ACE has a no refund policy.

All tickets including "Instant Tickets" need to be purchased and validated if applicable before boarding the train. There are no onboard ticket sales.

The system will stop billing once the term selected has matured.

Split payment option is available. The split will remain as originally entered.

No changes are available for the credit card or split allocation after the initial information is submitted. The account can only be cancelled/deactivated and would require placing a new order online.
