Basic Information

​​Inbound buses travel toward downtown.

Outbound buses travel away from downtown.

The standard fare is $1.75, and a full fare is required for every bus ride. Exact change is required, no change cards will be given.​

​​

How to Catch & Ride the Bus

STEP 1: Make sure you are at a designated stop along your route several minutes before the bus is schedule to arrive. Buses will only pick up at designated stops. All designated stops have bus stop signs. Buses will not pick up in construction zones.

STEP 2: As the bus approaches, step towards the street but keep back from the curb. Standing next to the bus stop sign lets the driver know you wish to ride the bus.

STEP 3: Once the bus comes to a complete stop and the driver opens the door, allow riders to exit before boarding. Pay your fare using cash or bus pass.​

​​

How to Signal a Stop and Exit

STEP 1: Pull the bell cord along the wall as you approach the block closest to your desired stop. Please only ring the bell once.

STEP 2: Once the bus has come to a complete stop, leave your seat and move toward one of the exit doors.

STEP 3: For your safety, exit the bus using the handrail. If needing to cross the street, wait for the bus to depart before using the crosswalk.​
