Fare Zones

The entire Victoria Regional Transit System, from Sooke to Sidney, is one fare zone and requires a single fare.


Transfers are proof of payment that tells the transit operator you have paid your fare. When you pay your fare, ask your transit operator for a transfer if you need to use more than one bus to complete your trip and are using cash or tickets as fare payment.

  • Transfers are issued only at time you pay your fare. This is your proof of payment, so keep it for your entire trip.
  • Show your transfer clearly to the driver every time you get on board.
  • Your transfer allows one-directional travel on any route for up to 60 minutes from the time of issue.
  • Your transfer is not valid for a return trip.
  • Your transfer will expire at the time torn on the front of the transfer.
  • Transfers are not transferable to anyone other than the person who purchased the transfer.

Family Travel

Youth aged 12 and younger ride free anytime when travelling with their parent or guardian. The adult simply pays the fare using a monthly pass, DayPASS, ProPASS, U-PASS or BC Bus Pass. Up to four youths can travel with one adult.
