Order Your SMART Train Pass Online

General rule of thumb for pre-tax transportation benefits: you always place next month's order by the 10th of the month.

All SMART passes are loaded onto a Clipper Card. If you do not already have a Clipper Card, you can obtain one from www.clippercard.com or from a fare machine at any SMART train station. Use your pre-tax transportation benefit to pay for SMART passes on your ConnectYourCare online account. See each pass type below for further detail on how to obtain a pass.

Please note that all passes must be ordered by the 10th day of the month.
