Fares[edit]

Current Fares

RTC has two types of fare: Local Fares paid on local routes and Zone Based Fares on Regional Routes. Youth, Seniors and people with a disability can receive a discounted fare.[1]

COVID-19 Response[edit]

In April 2020, evening trips on all lines and weekend service on lines 2 and 4 were discontinued due to reduced demand and staffing levels as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.[2] On March 23, 2020, RCT eliminated fare collection to promote social distancing between passengers and operators, however this led to a spike in non-essential trips and operator complaints about crowded buses which lead RCT to resume fare collection in early April 2020. Ridership during the pandemic is now down about 50%.[3]
