How to Use the Fare Box

Following these simple steps will make paying your fare fast and easy!
  • When the bus arrives please be ready to pay your fare.
  • Have exact change ready! The fare box will not give change or issue a change card.
  • After paying your fare, listen for a beep and check the Passenger Display, this indicates a full fare is paid.
  • Remember, if you qualify for a reduced fare or are paying with a bill larger than $1, please tell the driver before you insert any cash or tap your card on the farebox.

Paying with Coins

Drop coins one at a time in the Coin/Token Insertion Cup. If you are sure you put in enough coins but have not heard the beep, please check the coin rejection cup below the coin insertion cup.

Paying with Bills

Feed flat, unfolded bills (in any orientation) into the Bill Insertion Slot. $1, $5, and $10 bills are accepted. If you do not have the exact fare the fare box will not give change.

Using a POINT Pass

The first time a monthly pass is used it must be tapped on the smart card reader on top of the farebox. This activates the pass and the expiration date and time will show on the passenger display window.

Using a POINT Card

Tap the smart card on the reader on top of the farebox. The fare will be deducted and your balance will show on the passenger display..
