TCAT, the county's bus system, is implementing major changes in routes and in fare collection.
Computerized, renewable passes will replace disposable, paper ones.
TCAT is also planning to accept Ithaca Hours, the local cash currency, in partial payment for passes.
Details about Hours acceptance are still under review, but the new passes are available now, and their use will be fully implemented by Monday 18 January.
