Where To Buy

HRT provides many options for purchasing fares, including retail locations in Hampton Roads.

All HRT vehicles, except light rail, are equipped with electronic fare boxes. Fare boxes accept cash, coins and GoPasses. Fare boxes and/or vehicle operators cannot make change, so please have exact fare when boarding. All sales are final. HRT does not give refunds on any purchases.

Buy Paratransit tickets at a location near you.

What is a GoPass

A GoPass allows you to ride any HRT bus, ferry, or light rail route as many times as you want within the period of the GoPass. Customers may ride our MAX service with a GoPass, however, an upgrade fee may be required.

What is GoPass365

The GoPass365 remains active for 365 days. It’s purchased by colleges, employers, and consortiums to help with the transportation needs of students and employees, or as an incentive or benefit. Get complete details on GoPass365.

What is a Trip

All other fares shown are Single-Trip fares. A single trip is defined as the point at which the passenger boards the vehicle until the vehicle reaches the next published terminal point. After reaching the terminal point, all passengers must exit the vehicles. If the passenger desires to use the same bus for the next portion of his or her trip, he or she may re-board to begin the next trip.

*Other Notes

What is a Discounted Fare (DF)
Discounted Fares are for customers who are eligible to receive a discount on the cash fare upon boarding fixed-route services OR a discounted price on selected HRT fare media/passes. The following customers are eligible for Discounted Fare:

  • Seniors – age 65 and over
    Valid photo identification with proof of age is required for Seniors.
  • Youth – age 17 and under
    Valid photo identification with proof of age is required for Youth.
  • Medicare cardholders
    Must show Medicare card with valid photo identification.
  • Persons with disabilities
    Must show an HRT Discounted Fare ID.

Patrons eligible for the Discounted Fare are encouraged (but not required) to obtain a Discounted Fare ID. Please visit our Discounted Fare ID page to review the application and ID process.

Who are considered children or youth
Children and Youth shall be defined as persons 17 years old and younger. Children and Youth may receive free access either while accompanied by a fare paying adult or by using a Student Freedom Pass. In the event a child/youth is neither accompanied by a fare paying adult nor has a Student Freedom Pass, the child/youth may be required to pay the posted Discounted Fare. Customers requesting a Discounted Fare or free ride, and those using a Student Freedom pass, may be required to present one of the following forms of identification:

  • Elementary, Middle or High School Picture ID
  • DMV Identification card

Who is eligible for Paratransit fares
The Paratransit fare shown in the table is available for customers who present an HRT Paratransit Photo ID.
How do I redeem an IOU
If any of HRT’s Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs) in Hampton Roads fail to give proper change, it is programmed to issue an IOU. Any valid IOU up to $5 can be redeemed Monday-Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at one of our Transit Center locations. Claims must be accompanied by a valid IOU or receipt. Any claim over $5 will be issued by check and mailed. For more information, please call HRT Customer Service during normal business hours.
Money-saving tip
If your one-way trip to and from your destination does not require you to transfer — use multiple bus/light rail/ferry — it’s cheaper to pay two single-trip fares ($2.00 + $2.00 = $4.00). Remember though, for just another fifty cents (a 1-Day GoPass for $4.50), you can take any HRT mode (except MAX routes) along whatever route HRT serves that day as much as you want. That’s a good deal for fifty cents. HRT can get you there.
