Your group (minimum 20 passengers) can travel using individually encoded tickets, or if 100 or more persons, via original group Letter of Authorization (upon request).  To ensure timely delivery of tickets or letter, BART must receive your paid order at least 21 working days in advance of travel date for processing.

By submitting a field trip ticket order, the ordering school’s administration certifies that all students traveling on these discounted tickets are enrolled at the ordering school.

Please use this opportunity to enhance your students’ riding experience by encouraging safety, courtesy and good judgment while in the BART system.
