RTA ID Cards

To apply for a half-price fare RTA ID card, simply bring proof of age or disability (ID card, physician’s note, Medicare ID card, etc.) to the Dispatch window in the Transfer Station.  The dispatcher will then take your picture and issue you the RTA ID for a nominal cost of $2.00, which must be shown every time you board to get the half-price fare.


We provide patrons with a convenient option of paying with cash for one-way trips when they board the bus. Exact change is required, driver cannot make change. Credit and debit are not accepted on the buses, but are at the Transfer Station window.  There is a 3% convenience fee for credit/debit card usage.


Occasionally you may need to ride two different buses or routes to reach your ultimate destination. When boarding ask your driver for your free transfer. Transfers are valid at the downtown Transfer Station only and must be used within 45 minutes of arriving downtown. Unfortunately, transfers can not be used for a return trip on the same route that issued the transfer.

Monthly Passes

Monthly passes can be purchased at the Transfer Station dispatch window or from the automatic fare box on the buses.

Day Passes

Daily passes that are good for 24 hours are $3.00 and can be purchased on the bus (preferred) or at the Transfer Station dispatch window.
