Ride Often & Save More with the PART Rewards Program

Posted on July 17, 2019 at 8:35 AM by Brooke Kochanski

We are constantly striving to enhance our PART Express service through programs like our new TouchPass Mobile & Smartcard system. This simple and convenient system makes it easier than ever to purchase passes and ride with just a scan or a tap. But that’s not all this new technology can do!

We are excited to introduce our PART Rewards Program!

PART Rewards uses a process known as fare capping. While it is a little complicated to explain, the concept is simple. When you ride using TouchPass, the system counts every time you pay. Once you have reached our daily or monthly maximums, your TouchPass account gets capped and you won’t continue to pay when you ride.

Here’s how it works:

  • Load stored value (money) into your TouchPass account—you can load anywhere from $5 to $100 at a time as frequently as you’d like.
  • As you ride, the TouchPass system will automatically deduct money from your TouchPass account for each trip. (Transfers are still free!)
  • Once a daily rider has ridden two times in one day and paid a total of $5 ($2.50 for our discount riders), the TouchPass system will let you ride fare-free for the rest of the day.
  • Once a rider has ridden 32 times in a single calendar month and paid a total of $80 ($40 for discount riders), the TouchPass system will let you ride fare-free for the rest of the month.

For daily riders, this means that whether you ride three times or ten times in a day, you won’t pay more than $5! And for someone who rides to and from work every day, after 16 days, you won’t pay anymore to ride that month!

The PART Rewards Program is only available to passengers that use Stored Value through the TouchPass system because the technology automatically counts your total number of payments to confirm when you’ve hit your “cap.”

Don’t forget to make sure your TouchPass account is fully set up and registered in order to take advantage of the PART Rewards Program.

Once you do, you can begin enjoying these benefits immediately!
