StarTran Introduces New Fare Cards

To increase customer convenience, StarTran will begin offering new fare cards Monday, August 13. Fares will remain the same, but the new cards will use magnetic strip technology to keep track of bus transactions.

Changes include:

Current ticket books and punch passes will be accepted through October 31. They can be exchanged for the new magnetic cards only at the StarTran Office, 710 'J' Street. For information on exchanges, call 441-7185.

September passports will be the last ones honored. StarTran will continue the Passport Saver Program. Customers who save 11 consecutive 31-consecutive-day passes will receive the 12th one free. The discount offered through the Russ's Privilege Plus program will be discontinued.

These customers must provide proof of income, identification and the previous pass each month.

Students who use the bus have two options through August 31.

Students will not be able to use September passports in August as they have in the past.

Fares also may be paid with cash.

For more information on the new fare devices, please contact Kitty Miller at 441-7185, or For more information on the City's bus service, see (keyword: startran) or call 476-1234.
