The JO - Special Edition - Fares
Special Edition fare increase notice, new fares effective June 1, 2013. New pass sales begin May 15. Old passes will not expire.
Passengers are required to pay each time they board a vehicle. Special Edition will not bill riders nor will the drivers accept checks for a round trip. Please have the exact fare or a check for each one-way trip. Drivers do not carry change.
Aide's travel free of charge if there is a physician's statement on file at the Johnson County Transit office that states the rider requires assistance when traveling. Aides are not provided by Johnson County Transit, they must be provided by the rider.
Fares are based on one-way trips. The regular Special Edition fare is based on "as the crow flies" mileage and ranges from $5.00 per one-way for trips that are 10 miles or less, $6.00 per one-way for trips that are 10.01 to 20 miles, and $7.00 per one-way for trips that are 20.01 or more miles per way.
Residents who qualify for the reduced fare program pay $3.10 per one-way for trips within Johnson County and $3.10 per one-way plus 75¢ per zone for trips outside of Johnson County. See the Service Area/Zone Map for zone listings.
For your convenience, Johnson County Transit offers 10 ride tickets that can be purchased from the driver or by mailing your check to:
Johnson County Transit
A separate 10 zone ticket is available for $7.50 to reduced fare riders to cover the zone fare for trips outside of Johnson County. All tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.
To determine qualification for the reduced fare program, refer to the table below. The monthly income for appropriate household size is the maximum income allowable to be eligible for low-income status.
Applications for reduced fare must include proof of all household income. Household is defined as all persons who are related and living under the same roof, such as parents, children, siblings, and extended family members. This includes adult children living with their parents; in this situation, the parents’ income statements as well as applicant’s income statement must be submitted to determine eligibility for reduced fare. If an applicant does not qualify financially but otherwise qualifies, the application will be processed as regular fare for Special Edition.
