STA's New 'Rolling Pass'

STA has a new 'rolling pass' they'll roll out beginning in January. This pass is a monthly pass that isn't activated until the first time you swipe it at the farebox on the bus. That means that if you buy it on January 10, it doesn't expire at the end of January like the passes have in the past. Instead, it's good for 31 days after the first time you use it.

Prices for passes also go up at the beginning of the year. Here are the new pass prices. The price in the middle column is the 2010 price, the dollar amount in the right hand column is the 2011 price:

Adult Rolling Pass $40.00 $45.00
Youth Rolling Pass $28.00 $30.00
City Ticket $25.00 $30.00
Reduced Fare Rolling Pass $20.00 $22.50
Paratransit Monthly Pass $25.00 $35.00
Adult 2-hour Pass $1.25 $1.50
Reduced Fare 2-hour Passes $0.60 $0.75
Paratransit One-Ride Passes $0.75 $1.25
Day Pass $3.00 $3.50

I think that's a great idea. STA has so many pass options available to riders...they are light years ahead of the Seattle area bus system, which doesn't seem much into the "customer service" craze.
