How to Pay for Your Ride

Your one-way fare is based on the distance you travel. Please see the Fare Card in your Welcome Packet for current fares. You can also find fare information online at 

Cash: You can pay in cash— exact change only, please. (Drivers cannot make change.)

Credit/Debit Card: Customers can pay their fare with the following major credit cards – VISA®, MasterCard®, or Discover®. Customers may also use debit cards to pay for their fare..

Coupons:  You can use convenient Access coupons. Available in booklets of 10, you will find current prices on  your Fare Card. There are two kinds of coupons: 

  • Base Fare coupons are for trips up to 19.9 miles.
  • Plus Zone coupons are for trips of 20 miles or more. You can use Plus Zone coupons by themselves or you can combine a Plus Zone coupon with a Base Fare coupon.

Access Rider ID Card: If you have activated the pre-paid feature of your card and loaded funds on it, simply hand  your card to the driver upon boarding the vehicle. The driver will then swipe and return the card to you and the fare will be debited from your card.

To Order Access Coupons by Mail:

  1. Write your Access Rider ID Number on your check or money order.
  2. Send your payment and a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:
    Access Coupons

It will take 7 to 10 days to receive your coupons. (If your check is returned, you will need to send a money order to replace the returned check. The money order must include an additional $10 to pay for the returned-check charge. Access will not fill any request to purchase coupons unless the outstanding balances are paid.)
