Loudoun County Transit Resumes Fare Collection May 3

Posted on April 28, 2021 at 5:20 PM by Heather Smith

Loudoun County Transit will resume fare collection on all bus routes on Monday, May 3, 2021. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors approved the waiver of bus fares; at its April 20, 2021 business meeting, the board voted to resume collection of bus fares as of May 3. 

In preparation for this service change, riders are encouraged to review the fares for their trips at SmarTrip cards and/or cash will be accepted for all Commuter Bus, Metro Connection Bus and Local Bus routes. Riders of the Route 40 Purcellville Connector will still use cash only or the Virginia Regional Transit (VRT) punch pass.

Loudoun County Transit continues to follow the guidance of local, state and national health authorities to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure on transit buses. Operational changes include face covering and physical distancing requirements as well as more frequent bus cleanings. More information about requirements for riders and new cleaning procedures is provided at
