Fares

Fort Wayne Citilink offers a wide variety of fares and passes. Exact change is preferred. If exact change is not available, you will be issued a "Change Card" by the farebox. This Change Card does not expire. Note that operators do not carry cash, nor can the farebox give change. Transfers are no longer available, passengers are encouraged to take advantage of the "All Day Pass" for unlimited rides all day. For any additional questions in regards to this matter, you can call Citilink at 432-4546 between the hours of 5:30am - 7:00pm.

Fare Box Information

Fare box diagramFor customers who pay cash fares, simply drop the coins in the coin slot or insert a bill in the bill slot.

If you are paying a reduced fare be sure to show your ID to the bus driver before paying the fare. Citilink reduced fare photo ID cards are available from the Citilink office for $2.00 and are valid for two years.

The fareboxes are designed to accept any bill up to $20.00. Let the driver know you are using a larger bill and the farebox can print a stored value “change” card that can then be used the next time you board. The proper amount of your fare will be deducted each time. Ask your driver for details.

Transfers, Tickets to Ride, Ten Ride Cards, and Passes all have a magnetic stripe on them. These go right in the farebox (See graphic above).
