Document Description
The proposed Amendments to Comprehensive Fare Ordinance would introduce a new fare collection system and help induce ridership growth. The amendments include: • Discontinuing the current fare technology system named Compass and implementing a next generation fare system named PRONTO. • Implementing fare policy change to allow “best-fare,” PRONTO’s payment system that allows for riders to never pay more than the price of Day or Monthly passes. • Reducing youth one-way fares to align with Senior/Disabled/Medicare one-way fares. • Allowing free transfers with one-way fare with PRONTO card (except COASTER) within a two-hour window of first ride
