GMT Bus Fares Resume May 20, 2024

Public bus fares will resume in all Green Mountain Transit buses in Chittenden County on May 20, 2024. With the fares come new payment options and a new fare capping system that allows unlimited rides, while capping daily and monthly costs to riders.

The new fare collection system, called Ride Ready by GMT, includes:

  • Ride Ready by GMT app (available for iOS and Android platforms), with mobile ticketing and trip planning features and automatic fare capping
  • Smart Fare Cards, reloadable cards with RFID technology and automatic fare capping
  • Contactless Payments, including credit/debit cards and mobile payment platforms like Apple Pay and Google Pay
  • Cash (note: this option does not support fare capping)

With fare capping, GMT has phased out weekly and monthly passes. The use of the Ride Ready App by GMT or Smart Fare Cards enable all customers to automatically receive the savings offered by frequent use. These payment modes provide limitless rides for the lower fee without needing to plan ahead with the purchase of a pass.

You can purchase fares on the Ride Ready by GMT app. Smart card users can add cash to their smart card at the Downtown Transit Center, GMT Administrative Office, the Montpelier Transit Center, or online at Cash will still be accepted on-board vehicles, however, fare  capping is unavailable.
