StanRTA Approves Simplified Fare Structure and Extends Free Rides for the Rest of the Year

 Free Rides Until 2022

The Stanislaus Regional Transit Authority (StanRTA) Board approved simpler fare options for Stanislaus Regional Transit Authority (StanRTA) and Stanislaus Regional Transit (StaRT) services. The fares will go into effect in January 2022. Until then, rides on all StanRTA and StaRT services are free!

The Board approved the new fares to simplify the 40-plus different options that are currently available on StanRTA and StaRT. Some highlights about the new fares include:

  • Youth 0-18 are free
  • Most fares are reduced. 
  • A day pass will replace the single ride for $2.00. 

StanRTA is providing free fares as it reviews all existing routes, creates a new name and logo to represent StanRTA & StaRT in 2022.
