Fares Increase in Several Missouri Counties This Summer

Starting July 1, 2019, fares will be increasing in several Missouri counties. These changes are being made to help offset declining revenues, while supporting increased ridership opportunities to the general public. The fares are necessary to maintain current levels of service and will directly impact the company’s operating budget. Seniors and individuals with disabilities ride under contracts that are paid by third-party sources, therefore these fares do not affect those individuals.


Fare changes can be viewed below or by visiting our Schedules page.
