Try-TCaT Application

Try-TCaT Application Form

Tulare County Area Transit (TCaT) has established the Try-TCaT New Rider Discount Program.  This program offers discounted transit passes to new transit riders living in unincorporated areas of Tulare County. The discount is available for either the T-Pass, which is valid on transit systems in Tulare County (DART, Visalia Transit, TIME, Porterville Transit, and TCaT) or the TCaT-only Monthly Pass.  

To qualify for the discounted rate, you must meet the following criteria:*

  1. You must be a new rider to the TCaT system, which means:
  • You have not previously purchased a T-Pass or TCaT-only Pass; and
  • You  have not ridden the bus more than 12 times in the last 12 months.
  1. You must provide proof of residency in an unincorporated area in Tulare County (Valid Driver's License/State ID, utility bill, other valid identification) to the Tulare County Resource Management Agency at 5961 S. Mooney Blvd., Visalia, California. You must provide proof in person prior to receiving your vouchers.

If approved, you will receive vouchers to purchase up to six (6) months of discounted transit passes. The T-Pass normally sold for $50, will be available for $10. The TCaT-only Monthly Pass, normally sold for $40, will be available for $5. Vouchers may only be redeemed at the Tulare County Resource Management Agency at 5961 S. Mooney Blvd., Visalia, California.
