FARES AND RESERVATIONS
ESTA operates many of its public bus services with the assistance of Federal, State and Local funds, which allows us to keep the fares we charge to a minimum.
Unless otherwise stated on the specific route information, Discount Fares are available to riders age 60+, disabled and youth under the age of 16. Children under age 5 ride free when accompanied by a paying adult. Children under age 5 must be accompanied by a paying adult. You may ask for discount, as available at the time of sale. ESTA cannot provide refunds for a discount rate once the sale is complete. Adult Fares are charged to non-disabled persons age 16.
Discounted Passes (10-ride, or 2 week) are available on most routes. Passes sent by mail will incur a processing fee of 3.5% or $1.00, whichever is greater.
PLEASE HAVE EXACT CHANGE. CHANGE WILL ONLY BE MADE WITH COUPONS VALID FOR PAYMENT FOR FUTURE TRAVEL ON EASTERN SIERRA TRANSIT — CREDIT CARDS CANNOT BE PROCESSED ON THE BUS
Tickets and fares are also available at our Bishop and Mammoth Lakes offices. ESTA accepts Visa, Master Card, or Discover for advanced purchase with a minimum charge of $10.
Advance Reservations may be made with a credit card. The full fare will be charged at the time of sale. The reservation can be cancelled up to 24 hours before the time of reservation for a 20% cancellation fee.
Unused Tickets my be submitted for a 50% refund or may be used on the same route within 30 days by making a reservation.
Partially Used Tickets are tickets that were not used to reach a final destination. When a rider opts to disembark at a stop short of a destination, thereby not completing the purchased trip on a one way ticket, no portion of that ticket is refundable.
Late Bus and Missed Connections While ESTA makes every effort to provide on-time service, it does not guarantee its departure and arrival times, which may be affected by any number of factors including weather, traffic, or mechanical problems. ESTA is not liable for expenses incurred as a result of delay.
