Passes are $130 and are good for 130 consecutive days beginning when the pass is first used. For additional details, please visit the Semester Pass Program page.

Transfer Policy


If you intend to transfer to another route, you will need to obtain a Transfer pass. Let your operator know you will need a transfer as soon as you board the bus. You will pay your fare *($1.50) and the additional transfer fee *($.50) and you will be issued a transfer ticket to use on the next bus. This allows you to continue your trip without costing you the price of a full fare for the next bus. Transfers cannot be used on the same route and must be used within one hour of issue.

Note: You may qualify to ride for reduced fare if you are a senior age 65 or older, if you are disabled, a Medicare card holder, or if you are a student age 18 or younger.

Reduced Fare Program


A reduced fare is available to those who qualify. Qualifying individuals include seniors age 65 or over, Medicare card holders, students under the age of 18, and persons with disabilities. Proper identification (Medicare card or a valid KAT I.D. card) is required before boarding.
