How To Ride – Bus

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 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. If you buy your GoPass on the bus, ferry, or light rail vehicle, be sure to have exact change.
  • Persons with disabilities or Medicare cardholders pay the discounted fare.
  • Children 17 & under with a fare paying adult or with a Student Freedom Pass are free. Children 17 & under without a fare paying adult or without a Student Freedom Pass pay the discounted fare. Find out about HRT’s Student Freedom Pass.
  • Learn about the many ways to obtain a ticket on the HRT “Where To Buy” Fares page.

Things To Do On The Bus
