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 the bus for FREE anytime, on any route.

A PA Department of Transportation Senior Citizen ID Card or Medicare card is valid identification.  PLEASE NOTE:   As of July 1, 2018, RRTA customers will no longer be able to show a Medicare Card when boarding a bus to receive the free ride through the Senior Free Transit Program.  The only acceptable ID will be the PA Senior Citizen Transit ID Cards (yellow and blue cards) issued by any PA Transit Authority.

To obtain a PA Senior Transit ID card a brief application must be filled out.

A copy of proof of age is required to receive the ID card. The following are the acceptable proof of age documents:

PACE card

About Find My Ride Apply

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania offers this online eligibility service for people to apply for programs that provide transportation assistance throughout the commonwealth. These programs mainly help seniors, persons with disabilities, and people needing assistance getting to medical appointments, but other groups of people may also be covered depending on where they live and their needs.The service works by asking applicants a series of questions about themselves and their needs and then sends the responses directly to the appropriate transportation provider. The transportation provider may then request additional information before approving the application for service. The application process does not cost anything, but you may be charged a per-trip fee or fare for the transportation services. The transportation provider will discuss any required fares with you when you schedule service with them.
