Fare Charging

Pasadena Transit and Dial-A-Ride will begin charging fare on July 1, 2020. For more information on fares, please click here.

Please note: If you had an active 30 day pass that was interrupted by the Stay at Home order issued on March 16, a new pass will automatically be loaded to your TAP card free of charge. All you need to do is to TAP on a Pasadena Transit bus within 60 days, and the pass will be loaded to your card.

If you currently pay with cash, we encourage you to transition to paying with a TAP card. The TAP card has touchless technology. Hold it NEAR the fare gate, validator or farebox to pay your fare and listen for the beep. In addition, fares can easily be purchased online. For more information on TAP, please click here.

Boarding and exiting the bus: Boarding will resume at the front of the bus. However, to help encourage social distancing, please exit using the rear door. Exceptions will be made when use of the accessible ramp.
