If you are paying cash or using tickets, and have to travel on more than one bus to complete your trip, you will need a transfer from the driver.

Be sure to request your transfer as you pay your fare. If you have to take more than two buses to complete your trip, you can use the same transfer.

Transfers are free, and they are good for one-way travel, valid for the first connecting bus at transfer points only.

When you board your connecting bus, show your transfer to the driver with the transfer facing up, and the time showing.
