A one-way fare on this service costs $2.00. For more information, please visit the Paratransit page. Riders with the RTA ADA-certification ID may ride the streetcar, bus and ferry free of charge.  


Discounted Fares

Riders 65+ can qualify for a reduced rate by showing the driver a valid ID or passport.  

See above for a list of senior fares by service. 

Riders with a disability and Medicare cardholders can qualify for a reduced rate. Before being allowed to pay this reduced fare or get free transfers, they first must apply with the RTA to receive a special ID card, be sure to bring proof of age (65+), or proof of a qualifying condition or Medicare card. When boarding, show this card to the bus or streetcar driver to pay the discounted fare.  

See above for a list of disabled fares by service. 

Children under age 5 ride free with a fare-paying passenger.
