How much is bus fare in your city?

In Philadelphia it's $2 for one fare. 60 cents for a transfer. Someone told me that Philadelphia has the most expensive bus fare on the east coast, so I'd thought I would try to ask you folks to find out if that is true or not.

New York? DC? Boston? If you guys know, that would be great.

Also, do the buses run good in your city? On time? Cause they suck here. I hate public transportation.

Reason why I'm asking is while I was in high school, I had to take the bus everyday. Wasn't a big deal. School tokens were good for one fare and a free transfer. $9 for a 10 pack. So, it was easier in high school then it is now that I'm in college (this fall). Regular tokens are only good for one fare and cost $15 for a 10 pack.

I just want to know if I'm being ripped off as much as I think I am.

NYC both train and bus fare is two dollars with a free transfer.

aka i can take the train for two dollars then get on the bus for free (and vise versa) or i can take the bus and transfer to a different bus for free.

i cant stand the buses here but i do love the train.

and as a student we get a studen pass which is basically 3 free rides a day + the transfers and what not

edit: you can also buy week or monthly passes too which are obviously cheaper than buying, for example just a 4 dollar metro card (or a two way trip)

also if you buy a certain amount you get free money but they changed the way it works

before it used to be for every 10 dollars you get a free ride (2 dollars) but now its uneven and the prices dont work as well as before

im not sure as to individual fares here in portland but through the university im going to i can get a flexpass (bus, train, unlimited) for 150 per term, which is pretty good actually

I f*cking hate SEPTA (South Eastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority).

A monthly pass is about $78 for what I hear. We have day passes, but I think they give those out for free, but only at certain places on certain occasions.

In Ottawa, it's $3 for one bus ride (with a free transfer). That's if you pay with coins right up front in the bus. If you buy tickets ahead of time, they're $1 each, and you need 2, so that's a $2 fare.

In Seattle, I believe it's $1.25 if you're over 18, and $.50 otherwise. It's also cheaper if you're a senior citizen, and there's a free-ride zone downtown. That's for metro.

Community Transit is like $.25 more than metro


EDIT: the SLUT beats all public transportation

I walk when ever I can, asshole. But, we are talking miles here. In a major city. 6.8 miles, to be exact. You wanna walk that twice a day for 5 days a week?

Didn't think so.

Oh, sorry dude.

You could walk that once a day, then just take the bus back.

That's what I would do.

I walk for about 40 minute to an hour a few times a week just to get to my friends house in another neighborhood. Then, spend the rest of the day walking around doing god knows what.

Aside from that, when going to school, I'd have to walk 10-15 minutes to the bus stop, let that take me to where I get on a second bus. From there, it's about 15 blocks to school. When I had to go there the other day, I walked that 15 blocks on the way home. Took less then 30 minutes... so I might do that on the way home if I don't have anywhere I have to be. But, I'll need a job while I go to school, so I might not have that kind of time... but the buses run so slow, that maybe the 15 block walk will save time. I have to get a routine down.

$2?!
Thats like a pound...

Well a day's ticket is £2.70 in the southend area (you can get on any service) but then in the basildon area it's £3.50. Annoying when you want to go from my area to the basildon area, usually have to get a seperate ticket.
A monthly ticket is something stupid like £100...

Washington DC busfare is 1.35, if you have a transfer from the subway (called the metro over here) it's 35 cents. If you're really old you get a discount and I think it's either 40 or 60 cents for that.

We have a subway and an El (Elevated Train). At certain points, the El goes underground and interchange between the subway and El is free. And senior citizens ride for free. Lucky old farts.

$1.50 for a ride, no transfer fees (we don't really have transfers, though, every bus is seperate)

$50 for an all month pass, which is what most people do.

£1.30 (student) flat rate regardless of whether you go 1 stop or 20 and you have to pay that on each bus you get.

adults usually pay £1.50 though so about $3 per bus so 10 bus journeys (I'll assume 1 token = 1 bus ride) would come to $30.

1.35 here in DC... but it usually is not very conveniant, at least not in my area... i live in the NW corner of DC... the bus comes way too infrequently, and i always see tons of buses drive by with "driver training" or "not in operation" signs on them... it really makes me mad
