What Does it Cost?

Fares for qualified riders and their companions.

  • ADA eligible individuals with disabilities: $3.00
  • Non-disabled individuals over 65: $7.00
  • One companion may ride along at the same fare as the qualified passenger.
  • A Personal Care Attendant (PCA) may travel with an ADA-eligible passenger at no charge.
  • Service animals may ride with passengers at no cost.

Note: All fares are one-way.

When to pay

You must pay your fare when you board the GO!Bus, either in exact change or with a ticket purchased in advance. Drivers do not make change or sell tickets.

Why is the fare so low?

The average cost of providing a GO!Bus trip is about $20.00. Passenger fares pay only a portion of this cost. The remainder is paid with local and state tax dollars.
