Regional Fare Study

A region-wide study of transit fares is underway. The fare study dovetails with an overall effort to forge one regional transit service that’s easy to use.

Ultimately, the study will position the region for an entirely new revenue collection system. That may include mobile ticketing or alternatives to cash such as a debit card, stored value card or other mechanisms.

At the conclusion of the study, we hope to propose a customer friendly fare system for all transit agencies that includes:

  • A fare system that honors fares between transit providers ( or universal fare reciprocity between agencies)
  • Modern fare collection equipment, including smart fare media on all systems
  • Shared revenue based on agency usage
  • Expanded fare payment options other than cash
