Fares: What’s New

We’re introducing our new Day Pass

Effective February 1, 2015

  • Our $3 Day Pass gives you unlimited rides, until midnight on the day you buy it
  • Get it onboard the bus by telling the driver you’re buying a Day Pass, and feeding your $3 into the farebox
  • Remember you need exact change, as our drivers can’t make change for you
  • The Day Pass is not valid on Route 80X to Mt. Vernon

WTA offers reduced fares to veterans.

Effective January 2, 2015

Veterans who present ID to a Customer Service Representative will receive a Reduced Fare Card. Presenting this card to the bus driver gets them a 50% cash discount (bringing the cash fare from $1 to 50 cents). The Reduced Fare Card also entitles veterans to a discounted bus pass (bringing the cost for a monthly pass from $25 to $13).

We require one of the following forms of identification:

  • DD-214
  • VA Medical/ID card
  • DD Form 2 ID card
