Fare Free Program

Centro and the City of Syracuse have formed a partnership to offer free bus rides to City of Syracuse employees.

 
Under the program, employees receive free rides which are subsidized by the city. The program not only supports the usefulness of public transportation but serves as a model for employers who provide similar benefits, such as free parking, to their employees that drive to work.

 
Effective September 25, 2023, all City of Syracuse employees may ride Centro buses for free by showing the driver a valid City Employee ID upon boarding. The free service applies to any bus line that services the City of Syracuse, including Centro’s Auburn and Oswego commuter routes.
 
This Fare Free service operates every day, year-round. Employees who do not show a proper employee ID to the driver will be required to pay the regular fare.
