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, but will issue a change receipt for use on a subsequent bus trip.
  • 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, need a transfer or are paying with a bill larger than $1, please tell the driver before you insert any cash or passes into the fare box.
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, but will print a change slip for your future use.

Using a Bus Pass
The first time bus pass is used it must be inserted into the Electronic Fare Card Slot on top of the fare box. This activates the bus pass and prints the expiration date and time on the back of the pass.
