Deeply Discounted Bus and Parking Passes
To help reduce congestion during construction of the Holman Highway 68 Roundabout, Monterey-Salinas Transit will be selling deeply discounted bus passes to individuals who live or work in the area affected by the construction zone.

In conjunction with the bus pass, the City of Monterey will provide deeply discounted parking at the Downtown Garages. When a customer shows their MST bus pass, they can purchase 20 daily entries to the parking garage for $20, which a 50% discount. From the Downtown Garage, people can use their MST bus passes to get around Monterey, New Monterey, and Pacific Grove.
