Each Fare must represent a single base cost and number of Transfers.
Create a New Fare
Fares can be created by clicking New Fare from the Fares Dashboard.
A Fare has the following fields available:
|Field||Best Practice||Required?||Learn More|
|Number of Transfers||
|Number of Transfers|
Number of Transfers
The number of transfers refers exclusively to transfers within your agency's GTFS. It does not take into account transfers to and from other agencies. If no transfers are allowed, but Trips contain in-seat transfer allowed, then this will be overruled.
Example: Fares across the agency are $1.00 for each trip. There are no transfers allowed between Routes. The Green Route is a downtown loop and all its Trips contain in-seat transfer allowed. A rider who boards the Green Route before the end of one loop, and whose Stop is after the start of the next loop, will be shown a fare of $1.00 even though this is across multiple Trips in the GTFS.
Create a New Fare Rule
Fare Rules define which Trips a Fare will apply to, based on its zones or Route. Any agency with more than one Fare must use Fare Rules to define how those Fares are assigned.
Click Add Rule and define either the start and end Zones, Route, and/or Pass-Through Zone.
Combinable means that the Fare may be combined with other Fares, such as when no transfers are allowed between Routes, but two separate Fares may be combined to cover the cost of a two-Route Trip.
Reversible means that the start and end Zones may be reversed for the same Fare. This ensures a separate Fare Rule is not required for the same two Zones, just in different orders.
How Many Rules?
Every possible combination of Zones, or every associated Route, must have its own Fare Rule.
