The MCT Board of Trustees approved a new fare structure and other adjustments to take effect Sunday, May 9, 2021. View the presentation above for an outline on the changes, or view a PDF of the presentation here.
Below are highlights of the changes to MCT’s fare structure.
Madison County fare zones will be eliminated, and fares will be solely based on whether passengers stay in Madison County or ride into St. Clair County or St. Louis.
If a passenger’s trip begins and ends in Madison County, the base fare will be just $1.00.
If a passenger is traveling to or from St. Louis or St. Clair County, the fare is just $3.
MCT is eliminating the current “Express Round Trip Pass” ($5 and only valid on MCT Express buses) and instead offering a “Day Pass,” which will cost $5, and will be valid on all MCT fixed-route buses for a full calendar day.
The 2-Hour Zone Pass will be eliminated.
The cost of the MCT Local Monthly Pass and the MCT Local 30-Day Pass (mobile) will be reduced from $50 to $40.
Reducing the cost of the MCT Student Monthly Pass from $20 to $15, as well as the cost of the MCT 7-Day Pass (mobile) from $20 to $15.
The cost of ADA Eligible trips on Runabout buses will also be reduced. (See the paratransit page for more info)
