Transfers and Zone Fares

If you have to change from one bus to another to complete your one-way trip, ask the driver of your first bus for a transfer when you pay your fare. The transfer is 5 cents and is good for your base fare. You will pay the 5 cent transfer charge on the second bus, plus any additional zone charges if any zone boundaries are crossed. The transfer can be used until the latest time printed on it. A transfer cannot be used for a return trip on the same or nearby routes.

Transfer Prices:

  • Base Zone $.05
  • Zone 1 $.20
  • Zone 2 $.50
  • Zone 3 $.85
  • Zone 4 $1.25

Message about Zone Boundaries

RRTA separates all the bus fares into zone boundaries. Depending on how far you travel on the bus route, will determine how much you pay. Each schedule shows the zone boundaries on the map section of the schedule to help you determine your fare. If you are unsure please contact us and we will be happy to help you.
