FARES AND PASSES

Regular One-Way Fare

$2.25 for regional routes
$3.00 for express routes

When you pay your fare, you may ask the operator for a free transfer card if your trip requires using two GoTriangle buses. If you get a transfer card on a regional route and need to transfer to an express route, you will need to pay $0.75 on the express route. (GoRaleigh, GoDurham, and GoCary do not accept GoTriangle transfer cards.)

Discount Fare

GoTriangle offers a discounted fare for youth (age 6 to 18), seniors (age 65 or older), and customers with disabilities. Teens aged 13-18 can ride free with the Youth GoPass.

Discount One-Way Fare

$1.00 for regional routes
$1.25 for express routes

Each time you pay the discount fare or use a discount fare pass, you will need to present a valid ID to the driver. Find out what kinds of ID are accepted, and how to get a GoTriangle ID if you need one.

Passes

Use a pass to save time and money while riding the bus! You can purchase passes online and have them mailed to you. Passes are also available for purchase at the Regional Transit Center, and one-day passes can be purchased on buses. (Tell the driver you want to purchase a day pass before inserting money into the farebox.)

Many employers in the Triangle offer exclusive commuter benefits, such as subsidies and discounts on bus passes and Vanpool fare. See the list of employers here.
