Transit Fares & Information

Transit Fares & Information

Current transit fares for fixed routes and paratransit went into effect September 1, 2019, and the Fixed Route Fare Structure was simplified effective October 1, 2023. Fare simplification DID NOT increase any of the fares set in 2019. Instead, it eliminated sales of the 2-ride pass and expanded the discount fare category to include Youth (6-18), Disabled, all Veterans and Seniors age 65 or older. 
Scroll to the bottom of this page to read about "Pass & Fare Programs" that may be available to certain groups.
