Have plans changed and you need to travel on another date? No problem. Here’s what you need to know.


  • Tickets are valid for travel up to the date and time of travel.
  • Ticket changes must be completed prior to the original departure date.
  • If you need to change the schedule, you may bring the ticket to the nearest ticketing bus stop location or call our Customer Care Center 858-800-8898 to change the date or time of travel. There is no change fee for a refundable ticket.

Non-refundable tickets:

  • Ticket changes must be completed prior to the original departure date.
  • A $20 change fee will apply per ticket and must be paid at the time of reissue.
  • Only the date and schedule is valid for change. The origin and destination must remain the same. Passenger names cannot be changed.
  • Any advance purchase ticket has to stay within the requirements of advance purchase fares. For example, if you bought a ticket 7 days in advance, you will need to select a new departure date that is at least 7 days in advance of the change date.
  • You can’t change an advance ticket for a ticket that falls within holiday blackout periods.
  • One-way partially used tickets are not valid for exchange. If you have a roundtrip ticket, but only used one leg of the ticket, you may change the fully unused leg of the trip.
