Since ParaTransit is also public transit, you must pay a fare each time you ride. These fares are established by the Commissioner of Transportation.
Payment of fares
- The fare is $4 each way.
- The fare must be paid with exact change each time you ride.
- Ten-ride ticket books may be purchased for $40 a book with cash only and in person at the Westchester County Center box office.
Books may also be purchased from the Department of Transportation. Send a check or money order, indicate the number of books you are ordering and include a stamped, self-addressed envelope. No more than four books may be ordered at one time. Allow ten days for processing. Mail your request to:
Westchester County Department of Transportation

Transfers and surcharges
Americans with Disabilities Act regulations permit ParaTransit fares to be double the regular transit fares, including transfers and surcharges. It is also possible that on some trips you may be using ParaTransit for part of the trip and a Bee-Line bus for the remainder. For instance, if you take ParaTransit to a Bee-Line bus, you will pay full fare on ParaTransit ($4) and will be given a dated special transfer which will be honored on the Bee-Line bus as payment of the fare.
- Companions: You may reserve a space and bring a companion with you on ParaTransit. An additional $4 fare will be charged for each companion on a space available basis.
- Personal Care Attendants: If you indicated on your original ParaTransit application that you must have a personal care attendant travel with you, then that person may ride free of charge as long as they board and exit the van with you.
- Children: Children under the age five who accompany a fare paying adult may also ride free. We must request that children under seven ride in a car seat provided by the passenger.
