  • Overview

  • How much will my trip cost?

    When paying for your trip with cash, there are a few things you will need to know:

    • You can use either coins or dollar bills, but have your exact fare ready because our fareboxes do not make change.
      NOTE: Pennies and bills over $10 are NOT accepted.
    • Kids five and under ride free with a fare-paying customer. Limit: three kids per customer.
    • If you plan on using the bus all day, you can buy a day pass from the coach operator.
    • If you are paying a reduced fare, you will need to show proper identification to the coach operator. Review the reduced fares section for more details.

    Find the nearest pass vendor or buy your pass online.
