For calls to state offices in Sacramento or San Francisco, it may be possible to place the call collect over the State’s (ATSS) “leased-line network,” according to a procedure which went into effect July 1, 1968. The procedure is as follows:


1. In Sacramento, dial 445-4711; in San Francisco, dial 557-2123.


2. Give your name, department, and unit to the operator


3. Give the city and ATSS number you wish to call.


4. The operator will call the number and determine if the person being called will accept the collect call.


5. If the person being called accepts the collect call it will be completed; otherwise it will not be completed. The operator will not provide ATSS information service or phone numbers.


For this operator service, a surcharge of approximately 10 cents per call will be added to the normal ATSS bill of the department receiving the call.
