Paying Your Fare

Please have your fare ready when getting on the bus and remember that exact fare is required, as drivers do not carry change. Cash and tickets can be used on all buses. Deposit cash or tickets into the fare box.

Transfer Tickets


If you would like to purchase a transfer ticket, ask the driver for one when you pay your fare. Transfer tickets are only valid for 2 hours after they have been purchased and may not be used to ride the same bus the transfer ticket was purchase on.
