RABA - Redding Area Bus Authority

FARES

Fares and Zones

RABA's service area is divided into three fare zones. The cost per ride is the base fare when you travel within the same zone. When traveling to or through another zone, there is an additional zone fare.

Exact change is required. Drivers do not make change.

NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES will be issued for any type of RABA pass or ticket. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Be sure to confirm that you are purchasing the correct type of Monthly Pass for the trips you plan to take; a Redding-only pass covers a different geographic area than a pass that allows you to travel out of Redding and into either Shasta Lake City or Anderson, for example. Please note that Monthly Passes EXPIRE at the end of each month, so waiting until the end of the month to purchase a monthly pass is not likely to benefit you monitarily. Punch Cards do not have an expiration date and can be used for transportion to/from any area. MONTHLY PASSES CANNOT BE USED ON BURNEY EXPRESS OR DEMAND RESPONSE.

Monthly Passes and Punchcards can be purchased at the Downtown Transit Center (Yuba Street, downtown), by calling RABA Customer Service at 530-241-2877 (select option 3), or by mail. If ordering by mail, please include your check and return address, and send to:

RABA
777 Cypress Ave.
Redding, CA 96001

Visa and MasterCard payment accepted by phone (530-241-2877 option 3) or at the Downtown Transit Center.

Monthly Youth Pass

Our new monthly Youth Pass lets those 6-17 ride all month long for only $29. That's a huge discount over paying cash!

Punchcards

PunchcardPunchcards are available for the convenience of all riders; you avoid the need for exact change. Punchcards are available in a $10.00 denomination, and each time you use the bus the driver punches the card for the fare paid.
