As of July 1, 2019 the transit fare rates are as follows:
- Adults, Students and Seniors (age 65+) – $2.50
- Children (Under 5 years) with paying passenger – FREE
A valid paper or electronic transfer is accepted as full fare on all Chatham Conventional Transit Bus Routes.
Transfers are time stamped when printed. A valid transfer must be used within 60 minutes of the time of issue and can be used on all Conventional Routes; including the next subsequent run on the route the transfer was issued. A transfer may not be used on the same trip/run that the transfer was issued. A paper transfer must be requested at the same time the fare is paid.
Paper transfers will only be issued for:
- exact cash fares
- multi-ride paper passes
- single ride paper tickets
- Cash Pass (only when used to pay for multiple riders/companions)
The 30-Day Pass smartcard has unlimited use for the person to whom the card is issued and does not require a transfer.
The Cash Pass smartcard has an electronic transfer activated at the time the fare is paid (validated).
Therefore, paper transfers will not be issued when using smartcards. If a rider is using a Cash Pass and is paying for multiple riders (companions) and is using the same Cash Pass; one (1) paper transfer may be requested for each companion.
All transfers must be used by the person to whom the transfer was issued.
Transfers may be used for the Inter-Urban Service. A valid transfer that was issued on the Convention Service may be used on any Inter-Urban Service Route on the next subsequent trip/run for a “top-up” fee of $3.00 for adults, $2.75 for students and seniors and $1.50 for children under five years old.
