Commuter / Multi-Ride Pass Refunds:
Refunds on unused Commuter / Multi-Ride passes must be requested prior to expiration.
Unused Commuter / Multi-Ride passes requested for refund will lose their discount provided by the Commuter Program. Valid, partially used, commuter passes will be refunded by first subtracting the full one-way adult fare value multiplied by the number of used tickets from the actual sales price of the original discounted sales amount. At times, this will result in no refund. Should a refund exist after the loss of discount, there will be a 5% administrative fee applied to the total remaining value of unused passes.
To request a refund on Commuter Book passes only, please call 610-868-6001.
Passes will be refunded to the debit or credit card used.
