Fare Policy

Transfers are not accepted

Each boarding will require a cash fare or a pass. Each boarding will require a cash fare or pass.

Day passes are sold on the bus

Day passes are sold on the bus for $5.00. Unlimited rides for the day. Day passes sold on the bus are good only for the day in which they are purchased on the bus. Day passes purchased at the Transit Center or Dillions are good on the day they are first used.

Exact change only

Fareboxes do not give change cards. If more than the exact fare is paid, there will be no money returned with change cards. This speeds boarding and helps keep buses on-time.

Pennies are not accepted

Pennies slow fare paying, cause schedule delays and cause maintenance problems.

One fare is good for one trip from one end to the other

Fares are good for one trip. Once the bus starts the return trip at the end of the route, a new fare is required. All routes are combined into pairs. No transfer is required from end-to-end on the paired routes. For routes that are paired, only one fare is required to ride from end-to-end.

Ex. Route 11 (former West Maple) and Route 21 (former East 17th) are paired routes so a passenger can ride from 21st and Maize to downtown and then to 21st and Greenwich for one fare and on one bus.​
