As part of Intercity Transit's commitment to the community after the November 2018 passage of Intercity Transit Proposition 1, the Intercity Transit Authority (Authority) explored ways to make collecting fares easier and faster, to reduce delays and to simplify access for more riders. This was one of the community-identified priorities that resulted from our two-year public engagement process, IT Road Trip.
On December 4, 2019, the Authority approved implementation of a five-year “zero-fare” demonstration project. The project went into effect on January 1, 2020. This means that bus and Dial-A-Lift passengers will not pay fares to use the services during the demonstration.
