Service Worker Pass


The Service Worker Bus Pass Program is designed to provide transportation and financial relief to those workers in our community, such as service workers or those working in the food/hospitality industry, affected by the closure and disruption of business caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. RVTD will partner with interested local employers to distribute discounted passes directly to their employees at a 50% discount at no cost to the employer.


How it works:

RVTD will work directly with eligible employers to make these discounted passes available to employees. RVTD will allow approved employer partners to directly sell and distribute discounted passes to employees via the online TouchPass Merchant Portal (RVTD's e-fare technology). There is no cost to the employer to participate in this program.
