FARES


The base fare is $1.50. The fare to cross the river or to go to the New Orleans CBD is $2.00. The fareboxes accept $1, $5, $10, $20 dollar bills and all U.S. coins and provide change in the form of a value card that can be used for future fares.


Transfers are available from the driver for 50¢. They are not valid between JeT and RTA buses (Orleans Parish). They are valid only between the lines within the system from which they are issued.


Riders may also use Tokens or VIP Monthly Passes to pay their fare.



VIP MONTHLY PASSES – $60.00


Good for unlimited rides and valid for 31 days from the time dated on the card once it is activated. Most riders who use the bus every day can save money by using a pass. Plus, there's no need to worry about carrying the correct change. The VIP Monthly Pass can be purchased at the JeT locations shown below and at the Wilty Terminal Fare Booth on the westbank. Please note that JeT’s terminal booth and facilities only accept cash for tokens and monthly passes.


 



TOKENS – 10 for $15.00


Tokens may work better for riders who do not transfer between bus routes. Tokens are sold in rolls of 10 for $15.00. They can be purchased at the JeT locations shown below Please note that JeT’s terminal booth and facilities only accept cash for tokens and monthly passes.



HALF-FARE DISCOUNT


A half-fare discount is available to riders aged 65 years and older. The base half fare is 75¢. The half fare to cross the river is $1.00. Transfers are available from the bus operators for 25¢. To receive half-fare discount, simply present a government-issued picture ID (ex: State ID, Driver’s License, or passport) to the bus operator upon boarding. This change is effective as of October 1, 2017, at which point JeT will no longer issue Half-Fare Cards. Previously-issued JeT Half-Fare Cards are still accepted.
