From the Regional Transportation Commission:
The RTC Board of Commissioners have approved new transit fares for RTC transit services effective July 1st. The RTC has reduced the fare for prepaid bus passes by about 7%. Many people rely on transit and use it every day. Buying bus passes is the most economical way for transit riders to save money and take advantage of discounts by purchasing a multi-ride pass versus a single-ride fare. Bus passes can be purchased online at rtcwashoe.com, Pass Vending Machines located at RTC transit centers located in downtown Reno and Victorian Square or at various pass outlet retailers throughout the community. Passes can also be purchased by mail. Information for bus pass outlet and retail locations and purchase by mail is available on the agency website.
Other new fares that go into effect on July 1st include a reduced price for the RTC ACCESS on RTC RIDE 10-Ride Pass from $5 to $4. RTC SIERRA SPIRIT will have a regular fare of 25-cents and a reduced fare of 10-cents for seniors (born before January 1, 1950), youth 6-18 years of age and disabled riders. Reduced fares require ID when boarding.
New fare pricing for RTC INTERCITY, the commuter bus service between Reno/Sparks and Carson City, will begin August 11, 2013. For example, the new single-ride fare will increase from $4 to $5. Information for other RTC INTERCITY fare adjustments is available at rtcwashoe.com.
