Save on Fares

Tickets: Save when you buy a sheet of 10 tickets.

DayPASS: You may use a DayPASS as many times in one day as you wish. DayPASSES are valid region-wide. If you plan to take several trips in a day, you will save money by using a DayPASS.

Monthly Pass: When you purchase a monthly pass, you have unlimited travel on the transit system for a month for the same price as 15 Adult or 10 Concession return trips.

Semester Pass: The Semester Pass Program provides four months of passes at discounted rates, for students attending Vancouver Island University. Semester Passes are available at the Student Union Building.


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.

A transfer is valid for up to 75 minutes on one-directional travel. Request a transfer when you board and pay your fare. Hand your transfer to the driver face up with route and time showing. Only transfers that have received a hole punch are valid.
