Farebox Update

We've been working continuously with the Farebox manufacturer to make changes to the programming.  In the next couple of weeks, you will receive training on the changes to address the following issues:

  • Passengers paying multiple fares with large bills.
  • Passengers paying multiple fares with smart cards.
  • Clearing the extra money when passengers pay too much.

Reminders

REMINDERS

  • Please let the terminal and supervisors know as soon as possible if you are running late on your route.
  • Please do not leave the securement straps attached to the barrier throughout the day.  The straps should be retracted after each use.
  • Please let your supervisor know if your name badge is broken or extremely worn so that it can be replaced.
  • The ten (10) minutes you are given if you are taking a bus from the garage is not meant to be a paid meal or social break.  This time is provided to allow you to sign out your bus, gather any paperwork you need, pre-trip your bus, take care of any maintenance issues, and arrive at the terminal ready to depart on time.  If you need time to fix drinks/food or socialize, please arrive earlier than your schedule report time.
  • Please report to a supervisor any and all low hanging branches along your route.  We will report them to the appropriate individuals for trimming.
  • The Human Trafficking Awareness video and quiz must be completed by January 31, 2020.  The access code is Ly49Ri.
  • Please make sure you leave the bathroom clean when you leave.  Ensure the toilet flushes completely and wipe excess water from the countertop.  If the bathroom needs attention, please let someone on the maintenance staff know so it can be addressed as quickly as possible.
