Rider Relief Transportation Program (RRTP)What is the Rider Relief Transportation Program?
The Rider Relief Transportation Program (RRTP) provides fare subsidy coupons to eligible riders who purchase TAP cash value, EZ transit passes and/or daily, weekly, or monthly passes from participating transit systems. Eligible riders include adult regular riders, Senior/Disabled/Medicare, K-12 grade students, and college/vocational students who are pre-qualified by a participating community-based agency.
