I'll be going to Ocean City with two two year-olds in June. I've been to OC a few times, but never with small children. Do you have to pay fare for them on the buses, or do they ride for free?

Whether they have to pay or not actually depends upon their height and not their age. To ride for free, they must be smaller than 42" in height.  Otherwise, they will pay  the $3, but remember, that's a one time fee and you can ride as often as you like for 24 hours.

Good news for you; children under 42-inches tall ride OC's buses for FREE!

Hi, Katie!

Two two-year-olds? I will pray for you! :) 

As the other Insiders have said, you should be fine with them not having to pay a fare. 

Have fun and good luck!

I also think you are fine with having them ride for free.  It is up to the bus driver to determine if they are free or not, but the bus drivers are a friendly group.

Hi Katie, Yes children under 42" ride the bus for free. and you only have to pay $3 for 24 hours. I'd hold on to your bracelet each time you board within a 24 hour period.
