Fare

The Fare for seniors is dependent on your destination. 

  • For trips to medical facilities, the fare is $2.50
  • For trips to non-medical facilities, the fare is $5.00

This fare is for one trip only, therefore, you are required to pay a fare for both your destination trip and your return trip.

Demand Response passengers may pay with exact cash or purchase a Demand Response Ticket Book for $20.00. Each Ticket Book contains 8 - $2.50 tickets. NTS does not sell individual tickets, so the minimum that can be purchased is a single Ticket Book (of 8 tickets).

Ticket Books can be purchased by contacting the Operations Coordinator at (603) 880-0100 ext.3.

Drivers do not sell or accept payment for ticket books.

Note: fares may be subject to change.
