TARC Public Meeting
TARC is seeking public comment for feedback on a new fare collection system that will allow passengers to pay for their rides with the tap of a smartcard when they board. Fares will not increase and cash – exact fare - will remain a payment option. Smartcard payments will replace paper tickets, passes and transfer slips which will be discontinued. Free transfer trips will remain available with smartcards but will be discontinued with cash fares, under the plans, because drivers will no longer distribute paper transfer slips. Passes purchased on smartcards will provide unlimited rides for a specific time period beginning with the first use of the pass to pay a fare, unlike paper passes now used which provide rides only on a specific day or during a specific month. TARC plans to begin offering 7-day passes in addition to 24-hour and 30-day passes with the new system. Details about the plans, including a draft fare policy that will govern the new system, are available at www.ridetarc.org. Comments will be carefully reviewed and taken into consideration by the TARC Board of Directors before fare collection system decisions are final.
