COLT makes move to automated fare boxes

City of Loveland Transit (COLT) recently upgraded all of its old, manual fare boxes to automated, electronic boxes on all City buses. The new fare boxes are able to quickly count change and electronically scan bus passes, much like credit card readers do.

The new boxes greatly enhance ease-of-use and convenience for transit riders by enabling them to pay their bus fare with a quick swipe of a card versus waiting to have an old punch-pass punched or other pass checked by the driver. The change counter also speeds fare collection by eradicating the arduous process of change counting for passengers and drivers alike.

“We’re very happy to be able to provide even better customer service to our passengers with our new electronic fare boxes in place,” said Marcy Abreo, Transit Manager. “The new boxes will help us achieve better on-time performance, improve administrative efficiency and provide a much more user-friendly system for both passengers and drivers.”

In addition to the electronic fare boxes, COLT is now offering several new passes to further enhance ease-of-use and provide more pass options and flexibility for passengers.

  • Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Pass*          $25.00
  • Adult Annual Pass* (NEW PASS!)                   $180.00
  • Senior Annual Pass*                                          $25.00
  • Student Annual Pass*                                        $25.00
  • 10 Day Pass                                                       $12.50
  • 20 Day Pass                                                       $22.50
  • Monthly Pass                                                    $30.00
