Fare Donation Policy

High Point Transit System is committed to the provision of community transit services for all including low-income and disadvantaged users who may receive assistance from non-profit organizations. HPTS desires to do its part with the donation of transit passes to organizations providing these needed services.

  • One request from each organization will be considered per fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) with a maximum donation value of $100 per organization per year; and 
  • If the requesting organization has an account with HPTS, that account must be in good standing with no account balance.
  • Requesting organizations must submit their request on the attached form accompanied by the signature page of their most recently submitted IRS Form 990 or 990-EZ.
  • Requests must be renewed annually. 
  • The maximum value of passes issued by HPTS per fiscal year will not exceed $1,000 worth of one-ride complementary passes,
  • Donated passes expire based on the date encoded in the card, and
  • Donated pass values are based on the one-way fare in effect at the time of issuance.
