LOST TICKETS/REFUND POLICY (Effective February 1, 2016)
Refunds for monthly tickets are available as per the following guidelines. No refund or replacement ticket will be issued for lost, destroyed or stolen one-way, 10-ride, weekend or monthly tickets.
MONTHLY TICKETS: (Subject to a $5 handling fee if returned after the first day of the month)
All monthly tickets, regardless of method of payment, will be refunded on a percentage basis depending on the date returned with 100% refunded on or before Day 1 of the month for which the ticket is valid, 85% refunded on Day 2. The amount refunded continues to be reduced by 5% for every day thereafter until close of business on Day 18 of the month at which time no refund is permitted. Any monthly ticket, other than a Ticket by Mail ticket, purchased using a debit/credit card may be processed for refund at any ticket sales location, provided that the customer presents the ticket, the purchase receipt and the same debit/credit card used for the purchase. Tickets purchased through an employer sponsored fare media program are eligible for credit through the employer’s program manager.
