RIPTA Announces 2024 Community Site Visits for Reduced Fare Bus Pass Program for Seniors and People with Disabilities

January 18, 2024

Press Releases

The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) today released the 2024 Community Site Visit Schedule for the Reduced Fare Bus Pass Program for Seniors and People with Disabilities.  These site visits make it easier for Rhode Islanders to learn about and apply for this program.

Every month, RIPTA’s Customer Service staff will travel to communities throughout the state to process Photo ID bus passes for qualified seniors and individuals with disabilities with valid documentation. These statewide Photo ID Community Site Visits allow residents in both rural and urban areas to access transit information and apply for the Reduced Fare Bus Pass Program without having to travel to RIPTA offices in Providence. Customer Service staff will be on hand to process program applications and answer questions about all RIPTA services.

Photo ID bus passes for qualified people with disabilities and seniors will cost $10.00 in 2024 and are valid for 2 years.
