Mass Transit Terminology

Frequently used Terms

  • Fare: The payment a rider makes for RMTD services.
  • Fixed Route:  This is what we call the buses that have scheduled routes that they follow on a daily basis.
  • No Show: If a passenger has a scheduled trip and a driver has waited at least five minutes for them to come out and they do not, dispatch can instruct the driver to mark their trip as a “No Show” and move on to their next pick up.  “No Shows” slow down the system and may prevent those who need rides from getting one; depending on the service, No Shows can result in suspension of service for the rider.
