FAX Fares and passes
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.
