Yes and no. It's $2.00 if you have a Ventra Card, and $2.25 if you're paying cash. The drivers also don't have change if you don't have exactly $2.25, so that sucks for those that didn't plan ahead.

In which cities do bus drivers actually make change for you when you board? I've never seen that before...except maybe when I take the trams in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

I never said it was common. I have watched tourists and those who forgot to reload their cards who are in a rush begrudgingly overpay though, and, like I said, it sucks for them.

San Diego: $2.25 (some BRT routes are $2.50) $1.10

No transfers- I'm not sure if this is common or uncommon elsewhere- All day pass, bus or Trolley is $5.00 loaded on to a card.

small town, limited hours of operation, hits the main shopping/business areas/downtown/medical but I'm one street over from the main route and a route deviation is free. When I get to the point that I need to depend on it I'll be able to get to where I need to go to take care of my daily errands

$2.25....I think there will be a increase next year. It was supposed to be this year but it was cancelled.
