Children Fare Terms
We encourage the use of transit by families with younger children.
Up to 2 children ages 5 and under who are riding with a fare-paying passenger ride free. (Examples of fare-paying passengers: passengers who pay their fare with 10+1 ticket, 7 day pass, 31 day pass, single value ticket, cash. This includes reduced fare card holders.)
Up to 2 children ages 5 and under who are riding with a non-fare-paying passenger ride at half fare. (Examples of non-fare-paying passengers: passengers who ride free via a senior card or other free pass)
Children ages 6 to 11 ride at half of the normal fare, rounded to the lower nickel. In other words, an in-county trip that would normally cost $2.50 costs only $1.25!
This offer is in effect all day, every day, and no application process is necessary to receive the discount. Simply notify the driver as you board the vehicle.
