Tips about Interagency Transfers:

  • Transfers must be purchased at the time you pay your fare.
  • If your trip begins on Big Blue Bus, transfers can only be purchased when boarding and you must pay the transfer in cash.
  • One paid base fare allows you to purchase one single-use transfer.
  • Transfers are accepted as base fare only. They can't be used to pay for another transfer or an upgrade fee, such as the Rapid 10 upgrade fee.
  • After your transfer expires or you board a second bus, you must pay another base fare if you want to ride yet another bus.
  • Altered or damaged transfers will not be accepted.
