How To Ride – Bus

Note: Persons with disabilities or Medicare cardholders pay less for any fare or pass. Youth may also pay less than full fare on certain services. Have an ID ready, and ask before you pay.

Three Ways to Plan Your Trip

  1. Use Google Trip Planner on the GoHRT home page.
  2. If you know which route(s) you will ride, get the schedule on the GoHRT Routes page.
  3. Pick up free route maps and schedules at HRT Transit Centers.

Paying For Your Ride

  • To pay on the bus, have $1.75 in exact change ready every time you board.
  • To ride three or more times in a day, it’s cheaper to buy a 1-Day GoPass for $4.00. If you buy your GoPass on the bus, ferry, or light rail vehicle, be sure to have exact change.
  • Learn about the many ways to obtain a ticket on the HRT “Where To Buy” Fares page.

Things To Do On The Bus
