If you will need a Transfer Pass to complete your trip on a connecting bus, request a Transfer Pass from the driver when you pay your fare on the first bus. Transfer Passes expire 85 minutes from the time issued. Expiration is printed on the card. When you board your connecting bus, drop the Transfer pass in the farebox slot. A Transfer Pass may be used to transfer to any Rider Transit bus on any route within an 85 minute time period.

A Reduced Fare ID Card is required for all discount rates. Be prepared to show your Reduced Fare ID Card to receive the discount. Qualified individuals (persons with disabilities, senior citizens 65 and older, Medicare card holders with photo ID, and current students with a valid school ID and proof of enrollment) can obtain a Reduced Fare ID Card application through one of the following ways:

Reduced Fare Bus Passes and Reduced Fare ID Cards are non-transferable. The discounted rate is only valid for the person who qualifies for the Reduced Fare ID Card. Replacement cards are $5.00.

Keep your Rider passes, cards, and IDs in good condition so they can be read by the fare box. Don’t bend them or get them wet, and keep them away from high heat and out of the sun. All pass cards, transfers and IDs are non-transferable, cannot be shared, and are non-refundable. Misuse of Rider fare media may result in your pass being deactivated.

ADA Paratransit

Federal regulations allow the fare for ADA Paratransit to be as much as twice the cost of riding the fixed-route bus service. Currently the cost to ride on Rider Transit’s ADA Paratransit is $2.00 each way.

How to Purchase

The electronic fare boxes on the buses accept all Rider Transit passes, U.S. coins, and $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills. The fare boxes accept and count your money quickly, whether you use coins or bills. Just drop your coins in the coin slot or slide your bill into the bill slot, and let the fare box do the rest. The passenger display on the front of the fare box makes it easy to count out coins. Foreign coins or bills, damaged coins, and folded or torn bills are not accepted. Operators and fare boxes cannot make change; however, the fare boxes will issue a Rider Spare Fare Card for the overpay amount. This card can be used on future rides.
