Fares & Passes

Cash, tokens, passes and transfers can be used on all buses.Fare Box

If you use cash, exact fare is recommended because the fareboxes do not make change. Instead, you will receive a change card that can be used on future rides.  Change cards cannot be redeemed for cash and will not be issued for values less than 25¢.  Please have your fare ready when the bus arrives. The farebox accepts $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills.
