New Fare Technology:  Four Ways to Pay

As the new regional fare policies are incorporated into our day to day operations, it is important to understand that there will now be four ways for customers to pay.

  1. Mobile App – Riders with Smart Phones will download the TouchPass Mobile App and load rides onto their account by connecting to a bank account, credit card, debit card, pre-paid debit card and/or cash. Riders can use their smartphone to pay their fare by placing their phone in front of a reader as they enter the bus. Fares will automatically be deducted from your account.


  1. Smart Card – A Smart Card is a plastic reusable stored value card a rider can use to pay their fare by tapping on a reader when they board the bus. Riders can load rides to their smart card account by connecting it to a bank account, credit card, debit card, pre-paid debit card and/or cash.  Cards can be reloaded at several locations including the Saco Transportation Center.  Smart cards are not disposable.  A fee will be charged to replace a card.


  1. One Ride Pass – For individuals who ride transit occasionally, a one ride pass will be available for purchase. It will have a QR code that will be recorded by a reader as you board the bus for one ride. One ride passes can be purchased with credit card, debit card or cash.


  1. Cash – Riders will be able to pay the fare for a ride on the bus with cash. They must have exact change.  Drivers cannot and will not make change.
