Purchasing Tickets

One ticket is required for each zone. There are four (4) zones and the cost per ticket is $3.00. If you cross the corridor and outlining areas to accomplish one single trip, you will be required to use one (1) additional ticket. You will only be required to use three (3) tickets maximum, regardless of the number of zones it takes for a single trip.

  • Zone 1 McKinleyville
  • Zone 1 Corridor (Hwy 101& Outlining Areas)
  • Zone 2 Arcata
  • Zone 3 Eureka
  • Zone 4 Supplemental Areas (Samoa, Manila, Old Arcata Road, Humboldt Hill, King Salmon, Fields Landing, College of the Redwoods)

The average trip length is about 45 minutes, and a trip may exceed or fall below that average depending upon the circumstances.

All eligible riders, regardless of age must pay a full fare. All fares must be paid upon boarding the vehicle and tickets must be purchased in advance. You can purchase passes online with a credit card and have them mailed to you. See the HTA online store. You can purchase passes from the bus driver using cash. 
Important note: If you are not paying a cash fare do not put your money in the farebox until you tell the driver what you want to buy. You will not be refunded for money placed in the farebox accidentally.
