TARC3

Fares and payment methods will not change for TARC3 service. TARC3 vehicles will not be part of the new collection system initially but will be phased in later. With the new system, TARC3 passengers are encouraged to obtain a MyTARC smartcard with photo I.D. for reduced fare rides on fixed route buses.

  • Circulator routes: Single-ride fares will remain the same with cash or a smart card: $0.75; $0.30 for qualified passengers paying reduced fare.
  • Summer Youth Pass for ages 6-19 will be available on the smartcard starting in 2019.
