ABOUT US

TRANSIT

effortlessly

EZfare is comprised of 14 transit systems– Laketran, MCPT, METRO RTA, PARTA, SARTA, TARTA, WRTA, Lancaster-Fairfield Public Transit, BCRTA, METRO, Sandusky Transit,
TANKAAATA,
and SEAT.

 

Every week, thousands of transit riders utilize these transit systems, going to work, school, medical appointments, shopping centers, museums and thousands of other locations.  Many of these trips are across county lines and require passengers to purchase multiple fare types and get transfers.

EZfare makes transit simple and easier.

USING YOUR TICKET

 

Go to your “Ticket Wallet” and select the ticket(s) that you want to use.  Activate your ticket just prior to boarding. Your phone will become your ticket and you can show it to your driver to get on-board. (EZFare Validators available on some buses).
You have 30 minutes to utilize your ticket. You DO NOT have to be online to activate your ticket.

USING YOUR TICKET

Scan the barcode on the EZfare validator when boarding the bus.

SCANNING YOUR TICKET

 

The barcode needs to face the

scanner. When the screen turns

green you can board the bus.  A red screen means there may be an issue with your ticket that needs addressed.
