Where to Buy a Pass:
One day, three day and seven day passes may be purchased on the bus or at the Steamship Authority Terminals. From Memorial Day through Columbus Day, these passes are also available to purchase from a Ticket Seller at the Vineyard Haven Steamship Bus Circle, Ocean Park in Oak Bluffs, and on Church Street in Edgartown.
Annual passes and 31 day passes can be purchased at the VTA Operations Center in the Airport Business Park or the Edgartown Visitors Center. From Memorial Day through Columbus Day, these passes are also available to purchase from a Ticket Seller at the Vineyard Haven Steamship Bus Circle, Ocean Park in Oak Bluffs, and on Church Street in Edgartown.
Please note that VTA passes are good for calendar days ONLY, beginning the first time it's validated. For example, if you purchase a Three Day Pass and use it on Friday at 2:00pm, it will be good for that day (Friday), Saturday & Sunday. The same holds true for 1,3,7, and 31 day passes.
The VTA is not responsible for lost or stolen passes. If your pass becomes damaged and is no longer accepted by the electronic farebox, you may turn in that pass and purchase a replacement for $10. Replacement passes will not be issued unless the damaged pass is turned in.
Fares are $1.25 per town, each way, including town of origin.
Please note that Route #10 - Tisbury Park & Ride, Route #11 - Downtown Edgartown and the Sunset Bus portion of Route #12 are free (from Tabor House Lot to Menemsha Beach ONLY).
VTA buses are equipped with electronic fareboxes. Exact fare is strongly suggested. Please do not ask the driver for change, as they are not permitted to handle fares. No cash is returned from the farebox. Change is given in the form of stored value cards for future ride usage ONLY and is not redeemable for cash. Fares are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Persons with disabilities, veterans and senior citizens (age 65 and older) are eligible for a discount on all fares and passes with proper documentation.
Children (age 6 and under) ride for free, when accompanied by an adult.
If paying with cash, please take a moment to consider buying a pass. Passes are the most cost-effective and easy way to ride the VTA.
