The Casper Area Transit Team
As our community grows, our transit network must evolve to meet the changing needs of residents and businesses. In other words, we need more than single occupancy cars. Our Casper Area LINK and Casper Area ASSIST service provides low-cost public transit on fixed routes as well as door-to-door services. Subsidies are available to riders who qualify based on income. Our bus routes change, so please check route news regularly. Payment must be in made in exact change or check as our drivers do not carry change.

Casper Area Transit Moving to Electronic Fare System
E-Pass for ASSIST in progress and Scan Pass for LINK coming soon

Casper, Wyoming (May 17, 2024) – Casper Area Transit, ASSIST (door-to-door service) and LINK (fixed route service), operated by the City of Casper, announced that they will begin using the electronic fare system for bus fare, as approved by Council last fall.

Casper Area Transit is transitioning to a new electronic fare system for the ASSIST and LINK buses. An E-Pass will replace the current ASSIST ticket and the Scan Pass will replace the current LINK token, in order for Casper Area Transit to better help its customers and also to eliminate extra expenses and handling processes from continuing to purchase non-reusable tickets and continually lost or unrecovered tokens. The electronic fare will also allow for more accurate data collection, which is required by the Federal Transit Administration for purposes of federal funding.

The reloadable electronic fare system will be beneficial to the bus patrons for various reasons. Specifically, if someone loses their Scan Pass, they can notify the Transit office, and all remaining fares on the pass will be able to be saved and transferred to a new pass. Whereas currently, if one loses their fare, or it is stolen, there is no way to recover that lost fare. Another benefit is that currently the Casper Area Transit system does not allow for month passes for any timeframe other than a monthly pass for the current month. The new Scan Pass will allow for a 30-day pass that will be effective from the date it is purchased, and multiple 30-day passes may be purchased so riders will not have to come to the Transit office to purchase their pass every month. A benefit specifically to the ASSIST riders is that the pass will be an E-Pass, so riders will not be required to have a pass on them, and the possibility of loss or theft will not be an issue. In addition, the need for the tickets to be passed from the caregiver to the rider and then the driver, will not be necessary.

Paper tickets for the ASSIST bus are no longer being disbursed and will not be accepted after Friday, May 31, 2024. The LINK buses will begin transitioning to the Scan Pass beginning Monday, July 1, 2024, and the current LINK tokens will continue to be accepted through Wednesday, July 31, 2024. Any outstanding ASSIST tickets or LINK tokens can be transferred onto the patron’s E-Pass or Scan Pass, if the tickets/tokens are turned in to the Casper Area Transit office, along with proof of purchase. The timeframe For Immediate Release for receiving credit for these outstanding fares will only be for the month after that particular fare is no longer accepted, i.e. June 30th for ASSIST tickets and August 31st for LINK tokens.

If you have additional questions about the transition to the electronic passes please contact the Casper Area Transit office, 1715 E 4th Street, by calling 307.235.8261 or 307.235.8214, or visiting www.casperareatransit.org.

Casper Area Transit Celebrates 3rd Year in Operation Thanks Community for Support

CASPER, WY – May 8, 2024 – Casper Area Transit, operated by the City of Casper, thanks the Cities of Casper and Mills, Towns of Bar Nunn and Evansville, Natrona County, our citizens, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and WYDOT for their continued support of the transit system in our communities over the past three years. The ridership on the fixed route, LINK, and door to door service, ASSIST, has increased over the past three years since the City of Casper brought the transit operation in house in May of 2021.

All of our communities recognize the essential service that transit provides to our citizens. Casper Area Transit has continued to retire its aging fleet with new buses. We are excited to announce that the Casper City Council approved contracts at last night’s meeting for three new, low-floor buses and two new, ADA vans that will be replacing five vehicles in our fleet that have met their useful life. All five of these vehicles will have a new and exciting look from what we currently have in our fleet. Over the next year we will also be doing upgrades to our Transit Bus Garage and the Transit Office.

We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our Casper Area Transit staff, bus drivers, dispatchers, and administrative staff, for providing excellent customer service to our customers on a daily basis, and for being the lifeline for many of our riders. Without them, many would have a difficult time getting to work, medical appointments, and numerous other activities each day.
