Bus Fares, Taxi Rates and Transportation Fees

Affordable bus fares and special ride rates.

Public transportation should be safe, convenient and affordable. We make every effort to keep our bus fares, taxi fares and special transportation fares as low as possible. When you add up the cost of your time, gas and vehicle wear and tear, most of our bus fares and other ride rates are cheaper than driving. Think of it as My SWITA. My Ride.
