San Francisco's CityPASS shows off top attractions with discounted pricing

Shorter-stay and weekend travellers can now experience the benefits of the original San Francisco CityPASS program—deeply discounted prepaid admission to premier visitor sights—with San Francisco C3 tickets, customizable mobile tickets that allow entry to three top attractions.

San Francisco C3 tickets allow users to select any three attractions from a curated list of eight options:

  • California Academy of Sciences
  • Blue & Gold Fleet Bay Cruise Adventure
  • Aquarium of the Bay
  • Exploratorium
  • San Francisco Museum of Modern Art — SFMOMA
  • Bay City Bike & Parkwide Bike Rentals
  • de Young Museum + Legion of Honor
  • The Walt Disney Family Museum

"We've seen success with the C3 ticketing options we've introduced in other partner cities," explained Megan Allen, CityPASS president and CEO. "Based on the enthusiasm for those programs, San Francisco—which is such a popular weekend getaway destination—seemed an ideal location for our newest C3 offering."

Unlike the original San Francisco CityPASS ticket booklet—which is available for those enjoying a longer stay in the City by the Bay—San Francisco C3 tickets aren't booklets at all. Available for purchase only through citypass.com, they are mobile tickets delivered directly to the purchaser's email. The email can be saved to a smartphone and easily scanned at each attraction.

Designed to be flexible, the tickets do not require the buyer to pre-select the attractions that will be visited; travellers are free to choose as they go.

(Note: Those without smartphones can opt to print out their C3 tickets.)

San Francisco C3 tickets cost $69 for adults and $54 for children, age 4-11. Visitors using the tickets save up to 32 per cent off the cost of purchasing individual admission tickets. Each ticket is valid for nine consecutive days, starting with the first day of use.
