Fare Capping kicks in at $4.00 daily, $60.00 monthly.

How to Pay

Insert coins or flat, unfolded bills into the farebox; rejected coins drop to the Rejected Coin Return Cup, and pennies and tokens are not accepted.

Your pass will print from the top of the farebox with the expiration time on the back; swipe for subsequent rides.

Tap your contactless Visa, Mastercard, or Discover card (or use Apple Pay or Google Pay) at the fare validator; you’ll be charged $2 for unlimited rides within two hours and $4 for unlimited rides for the day.

Cards with the contactless symbol are required, and you must use the same card or device for each trip to benefit from daily fare capping.

Place your Connect card flat against the contactless logo below the screen on the card reader. It doesn’t matter which side of the card as long as it’s laid flat.

When your card has been validated and fare collected, you’ll hear a beep and see a green check mark.
