The Half Fare Program is for persons with qualifying disabilities to receive half off the cash fare on RRTA’s fixed-route bus service. Persons under age 65 with a Medicare card qualify for this program. Customers who have a Half Fare ID card, can ride at half the cash fare all day. A Half Fare ID card or Medicare Card must be shown to receive the cash fare discount at the time of boarding. An application must be filled out to receive the Half Fare ID Card.
If you are age 65 or older, you can ride FREE through the Senior Free Ride Program, which is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Lottery. Eligible seniors may ride any RRTA bus route for FREE any time! A PA Transit ID card is valid proof to ride. A Senior Citizen Free Ride Application must be completed to receive the Senior ID card to ride free. A proof of age document is required.
Student Fares and Student Discount Passes apply to grades K-12. High school students must show proof of student status to obtain the discount rate when paying cash fares. 10 Ride Student Passes and 31 Day Student passes are available for purchase. Students must show School ID when purchasing passes in person. If purchases are made on-line, a copy of the Student ID must be attached to the order the first time a student pass is purchased. If students are using the RRTA Go Mobile app, the student must visit RRTA Offices the first time to be designated as a student in their account. Once they are designated as a student, they will be able to purchase Student Passes.
