Hazleton Public Transit one-way bus fare is $1.50. Operators and fareboxes cannot make change so we ask that you have the exact change ready when you ride HPT.
HPT passengers can connect between bus routes with the purchase of a transfer. Transfers cost $0.50 and are useable for up to one (1) hour or until the arrival of the next available bus.
