TicketingEdit

GBT uses a system called ZipTrip for fare collection. This acts as any other pass or transfer would, permitting free, unlimited rides in any direction until expiration. It was first introduced in 2007, prior to which payment was made in cash or tokens. Tokens may still be purchased at the GBT hub adjacent to the Bridgeport Metro North Railroad station.[3]
