Cheyenne Transit Program to start collecting fares October 4th
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - The Cheyenne Transit Program (CTP) will reinstate fare collection beginning Monday, October 4th. CTP waived fares in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
CTP takes the health and safety of the community and customers very seriously. CTP has waited to collect fares until it felt it could do so safely. Passenger fares do not comprise a large portion of CTP’s operating budget but are obligated to be fiscally responsible while continuing to connect customers to the community.
Fares will be reinstated at $1.50 for all passengers and all trips. There will be no discounted fares; however, grant funds allow passengers 60 years of age and older who have a current CTP issued senior ID card to ride free with a voluntary contribution encouraged. CTP will accept “1-RIDE” farebox passes but will not accept other farebox passes at this time. CTP will accept punch cards but will not restart punch card sales until route service is restored.
A date when fixed-route bus services resume is still to be determined. CTP continues working toward fully staffing driver positions and intend a return to fixed-route service as soon as possible.
Face masks on buses will continue to be required.
