Passes & Fares

Single-ride tickets and transfer tickets can be purchased on the bus using cash and coins.

Exact change is preferred; however, if you use a larger bill than necessary, the fare box will print a change receipt with the balance. This receipt can then be used as payment for future bus rides until the balance is zero. Change receipts cannot be exchanged for cash.

Day Passes, 7-Day Passes, 20-Ride Passes, and 31-Day Passes can be purchased at the information booth in the Transit Center (100 W. McBee Avenue) using cash, VISA or MasterCard. 

NEW! Customers can now pay their bus fare using a reloadable smart card or a smartphone app. Learn more about Greenlink’s new TouchPass electronic ticketing system. The TouchPass is required for customers purchasing the 7-Day Pass and the 31-Day Pass.

*Effective January 1, 2021: paper punch passes will no longer be accepted as fare payment to board a Greenlink bus. Greenlink ended sales of all paper punch passes on July 1, 2020 and provided customers with a six-month window to use any remaining punches on their paper punch passes. Customers must now purchase all trip-based passes through the electronic TouchPass system. To ease the transition to TouchPass, customers who prefer the reloadable smartcard can get one for FREE at the dispatch booth in the Greenlink Transit Center through December 31. 

Additionally, effective January 1, 2021, passengers using TouchPass must have enough money in their TouchPass account to pay for the entire fare in order to board the bus. Payment can be loaded onto TouchPass accounts by visiting the dispatch booth and using cash, coins, or credit/debit cards. TouchPass smart card users can also log onto TouchPass.com to upload value using a credit/debit card. TouchPass app users can make transactions inside the app using credit/debit cards.

Greenlink will not issue refunds for unused tickets, passes, or TouchPass balances.
