Types of Fares

Reduced Fares

People age 65 and older, people with a Medicare card and persons with disabilities are eligible to apply for a Skagit Transit Reduced Fare permit. This free permit entitles you to ride the regular route buses throughout Skagit County at a discounted fare. These discounted fares are offered throughout the system all day every day. You may obtain a free Skagit Transit Reduced Fare Permit by applying at the Customer Service Office at Skagit Station with the proper documentation. Either a Medicare card or a Reduced Fare Permit must be shown to the driver when a rider boards the bus and wants to pay a reduced fare.

Also you can purchase the Regional Reduced Fare Permit. This permit entitles you to ride the regular buses throughout the Puget Sound Region at a discounted fare. The permit is also valid on the Washington State Ferries. The permit is REQUIRED ON MOST TRANSIT SYSTEMS IN ORDER TO PAY A REDUCED FARE. The laminated Regional Reduced Fare Permit is available for $3.00 from any Puget Sound transit agency. It has no expiration date unless issued to a person with a temporary disability. Be sure to bring proof of age (65+), a valid Medicare card or proof of qualifying condition. Learn if you qualify for reduced fares and where to get an RRFP
