New IDs for City Transit
AMARILLO, TX – New identification cards for Amarillo City Transit (ACT) passengers will be available beginning Monday (Oct. 14).
ACT staff and leadership will be at the Downtown Transfer Center at Third Avenue and Fillmore Street on Monday to assist passengers in the transition to the new ID cards and reduced-fare ID cards.
Passengers can also obtain the new ID cards at the ACT office, 801 S.E. 23rd Ave.
To obtain a reduced-fare card, applicants must present proof of eligibility. A reduced-fare card is not required for seniors. Seniors can present a Medicare card and a photo ID to qualify for the reduced fare. Individuals can receive an ACT reduced-fare card picture ID to simplify the process.
Individuals with disabilities are required to provide proof of disability. This includes a Supplemental Security Income (SSI) letter or other proof of SSI; a Medicare card for individuals younger than 65 who are on dialysis; a disabled veterans ID; a disability parking placard application (signed by a physician) with ID; a physician’s original-dated letter stating a disabling condition; a Social Service agency original-dated letter stating a disabling condition; a previously-issued ACT blue or yellow reduced-fare ID card or hospital or medical papers that demonstrate a disability. Other proof of disability may be used at the discretion of ACT.
