TARC is seeking public comment for feedback on a new fare collection system that will allow passengers to
pay for their rides with the tap of a smartcard when they board. Fares will not
increase and cash – exact fare - will remain a payment option.
Smartcard payments will replace paper
tickets, passes and transfer slips which will be discontinued. Free
transfer trips will remain available with smartcards but will be discontinued
with cash fares, under the plans, because drivers will no longer distribute
paper transfer slips.
Passes purchased on smartcards will
provide unlimited rides for a specific time period beginning with the first use
of the pass to pay a fare, unlike paper passes now used which provide rides
only on a specific day or during a specific month. TARC plans to begin
offering 7-day passes in addition to 24-hour and 30-day passes with the new
Details about the plans, including a
draft fare policy that will govern the new system, are available at www.ridetarc.org. Comments will be carefully
reviewed and taken into consideration by the TARC Board of Directors before
fare collection system decisions are final.
