Often passengers need to use two or more buses to reach their destination. Transfers are free. Please remember:

  • A transfer is valid on all routes except the route indicated on the face of the transfer.
  • A transfer is valid on the date of issue and until the time indicated by the cutoff.
  • When transferring to the Port Edward bus, you must pay the difference in fares.
