Contactless Fares: How Calculated and Charged

If paying with a contactless bank card or mobile wallet at a contactless payment reader aboard an MST bus, your fare will be based on distance traveled (as the crow flies). For example, a trip of 4.0 miles will cost $2.50 as a Regular Fare and $1.25 for a *Discount Fare when tapping to pay. *Discounted fares are now available for older adults (ages 65+); see our Benefits page to learn how to enable these fares. We are working on enabling discounted contactless fares for other categories of riders as well.

Fares when paying with a contactless payment method

DistanceRegular Contactless FareDiscount Contactless Fare
Up to 2.7 miles$1.50$0.75
Between 2.7 and 14 miles$2.50$1.25
14 – 50 miles$3.50$1.75
50 – 77 miles$7.00$3.50
77 miles or more$10.00$5.00

In addition to calculating your fare by distance traveled when paying with a contactless bank card or mobile wallet, MST is introducing fare capping with contactless fare payment. Fare capping guarantees that you won’t be charged more than $10.00 per day (or $5.00 per day for older adults ages 65+ who qualify for a discounted fare*) no matter how many times you ride in a day—as long as you pay with the same contactless card or mobile wallet throughout the day. (*Note: Discounted fares are currently only available for registered contactless bank cards.)

MST is also introducing new 7-day and 31-day fare-capping amounts.

Please see the table below for daily, weekly, and monthly fare-capping amounts when paying with a contactless payment method.

Fare-Capping PeriodMaximum Regular Contactless FareMaximum Discount Contactless Fare
Daily cap$10$5
7-Day cap$50$25
31-Day cap$95$47

The 7-day and 31-day caps operate on a rolling basis. This means that a cap will apply for all trips taken within a 7-day and 31-day period from the first time you tap to pay, and on a rolling basis, based on usage thereafter.

To take advantage of fare capping, you must always use the same payment method to tap on and off for your trip. For example: Don’t use your iPhone to tap on, and then tap off with your Apple Watch. Even though the same bank card may be linked via both devices, you will be charged as if you are beginning a new trip and you will lose the benefit of fare capping.

If you would like more information on fare capping, please contact MST Customer Service at 888-678-2871, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Offices are closed on weekends and observed holidays.
