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.”

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 Fare Card.

For all rides scheduled at least 1 day in advanced of the trip the ride is considered pre-scheduled (office hours 8 am to 9 pm). All rides scheduled after 9 pm for the following day will be considered Same Day. See pricing list below.
