Broward County Transit (BCT) will resume collecting bus fares on Tuesday, June 1, 2021.

Broward County Transit (BCT) will resume collecting bus fares on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. At that time, passengers will be asked to board through the front door to pay their fares and exit through the rear doors. Passengers are also required to wear face masks and maintain a safe social distance when riding the bus. BCT suspended fares on March 24, 2020, as one of many safety measures put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

BCT will continue its policy to maintain social distancing and increase frequency on bus routes when needed. Additional enhanced safety measures include disinfecting buses nightly with extra cleaning during the day, equipping buses with ionizing air purifiers that clean the air, and installing bus operator cabin partitions throughout the entire fleet.

“Safety is our top priority, and we continue to work tirelessly to protect or customers and bus operators. We thank passengers for their patience and for doing their part to keep everyone safe,” said Transportation Director Chris Walton.

BCT urges customers to take advantage of the contactless mobile ticketing app, which will be available on May 24, 2021. Mobile tickets are a safe, easy and convenient way to purchase bus fare. Customers can download the Broward County Transit Mobile Ticketing app to their smartphone from Google Play or the Apple App Store, buy their ticket and scan it when boarding.

Also, beginning May 24, paper bus passes can be purchased online at or in-person at BCT terminals, County libraries and participating businesses.

Customer service representatives are available to answer questions and assist riders with ticket purchases and downloading the mobile ticketing app. For more information, call the Customer Service Center at 954-357-8400 or visit
