Free and Reduced-Fare Transportation

Free and Reduced-Fare Transportation

Anyone age 65 or older can ride public transit for free, while commuter rail trips are $1 each. Those 65 and older also qualify to use on-demand, shared-ride services at a reduced rate.

In 2014-15, nearly $170 million in Lottery funds provided for more than 34 million free transit rides and 4 million shared rides.

On average, Lottery funds helped to provide more than 104,000 free and reduced-fare shared rides for older Pennsylvanians, every day.
