TRANSFER POLICY

Transfers are controlled by a 2-hour time limit and are good anywhere in the system except for the same route in the same direction.

In accordance with these rules, a transfer can be used for an unlimited number of rides for up to two hours.  However, a second transfer cannot be issued from the first transfer; passengers must pay full fare.  Also, the pass back feature of the farebox will not allow the transfer to be reused on the same bus within 10-minutes.

*Low income persons with a disability or age 65 and above may ride free of charge with a RIPTA NO FARE ID PASS. All other persons age 65 and above or with a disability pay full fare during RIPTA peak hours of service (7am-9am and 3pm-6pm) on weekdays and pay 1/2 fare all other times upon presentation of a RIPTA Senior/Disabled ID Pass or a Medicare ID Card.
