  • Keep in mind that prices are the same to all islands, but tickets and passes will still be sold by island.
  • Use up your current tickets and passes! All outstanding tickets, passes and books will continue to be valid until the expiration date as printed.
  • Children between the ages of 5 and 17 are now eligible for Half Price tickets and passes. Children under 5 continue to ride for free!
  • If you plan to purchase a 30-day, 90-day or Annual Pass:
    • Please make every effort to avoid purchasing your pass on June 1. This helps to stagger expiration dates and avoids congestion at the ticket window. Use your current tickets and passes until they expire.
    • When you arrive to purchase your pass, staff will take your name, e-mail address and photo so prepare for additional time to process.
    • All 30-day, 90-day, and Annual Passes include the transportation of one bike and/or domestic animal with the pass holder.
    • All 30-day, 90-day, and Annual Passes will be island specific but can be used to travel to any island.
    • All 30-day, 90-day and Annual Passes are non-refundable.
    • If you forget your 30-day, 90-day or Annual Pass at home, you will need to purchase a regular-priced ticket.
    • To purchase a Half Price 30-day, 90-day or Annual Pass (senior and disabled), you will be required to show ID.
