There is also an additional charge of 25¢ between Milton and Culloden. In Ohio, there is an additional charge of 25¢ for service beyond Solida Road to (and from) Ironton or Huntington.
Customers with a Medicare card ride for one-half the basic fare. “Dial-A-Ride” customers ride for double the basic bus fare. You are welcome to call the TTA dispatcher for the exact fare for your trip with TTA or TTA-Ohio.
A fully accessible downtown customer service center in Huntington adds to the convenience of travel on the TTA bus system. TTA Center is in the beautifully restored Greyhound bus terminal located at the corner of 4th Avenue and 13th Street. The staff at TTA Center can help you with route and schedule information. Customers can also purchase discounted bus passes at TTA Center.
TTA buses and “Dial-A-Ride” vans are equipped with automatic electronic fare boxes. Passes can also be purchased from the fare box. The electronic fare boxes do not make cash change. They dispense a change card good only for rides on the TTA transit system. It is best if you have the exact change for your bus fare if you are not riding with a pass. Necessary change is available at TTA Center.
