Fares (Pierre/Fort Pierre)

A fare covers the cost of going from point of origin (pick-up point) to first destination (drop-off point). In the transit industry; that travel is referred to as a “trip.”

Effective 10/04/2017 if paying for daily rides with a credit card a minimum of $5.00 will be charged. Even if you total is less than $5.00 you will be charged the full amount with no credit back. To avoid this the best solution is to get a RCPT farecard.

For all rides scheduled at least 1 day in advanced of the trip (office hours 9 am to 9 pm)

If you have any questions you can either give us a call at 945-2360 or refer to our Passenger Handbook.
