A Medicare card is sufficient proof for eligibility for the Federal Half Fare program. Passengers with a disability, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act, may be entitled to a Pennsylvania Reduced-Fare Transit Identification Card to ride regular fixed route buses for one-half the regular adult fare. Passengers may bring their Medicare card the CAT office to receive their identification card. If you do not possess a Medicare card, you may request to have an application mailed to you. A doctor will need to sign the application to verify your disability. Once this is done, you may either mail the completed application CAT person and a Reduced Fare Transit Identification Card will be issued to you. Passengers over 65 may also use their Medicare Card to ride for half fare, however CAT encourages them to apply for the free fare card and ride for free.

Token Transit is a mobile ticketing app that lets you pay for and ride public transit with your phone. We partner with transit agencies across the country to offer fare payment for your public transit agency in our app.
With the Token Transit app, you purchase, activate and board using just your phone. All of your passes are stored in the cloud, and retrievable on any mobile device.
Active passes will be displayed under “passes in use,” which immediately appears when the Token Transit app is opened. They display a “time left” section with time remaining until the pass expires. Passes that have not been activated yet will be displayed under “stored passes,” and can be stored as long as you like.
Currently Token Transit accepts credit, debit or a prepaid debit cards as forms of payment as well as Apple Pay on iOS devices. We are looking into additional methods of letting users pay for the bus through our app. Contact us to let us know how you would like to pay.
We are a convenient alternative to existing forms of payment. If you do not have a credit or debit card you can always continue to use your current method to pay for transit fares.
Please reach out directly to your transit agency if you have any questions or concerns regarding the agency and their service. Token Transit can help with your mobile passes and can help refer you to the transit agency for further assistance if you need.
