Beginning Sunday, February 14, Big Blue Bus will resume fare collection and front door boarding on all buses. In March 2020, we suspended fare payment and required customers to board through the rear doors, to support social distancing between Operators and customers.

Big Blue Bus has retrofitted its fleet with protective, plexiglass barriers for Operators. The barriers, along with other on-board safety measures - rigorous cleaning, mandatory face coverings, physical distancing, and capacity limits - help ensure that fare collection and front door boarding can safely resume, with minimal contact between Operators and customers.

Save with Contactless Payments!

Big Blue Bus is switching to contactless fare payments this summer! This means that customers will soon be required to pay for rides with TAP or a mobile ticket, instead of cash and tokens.

Contactless is the safer, faster, and more convenient way to pay your fare. And to get you rolling on Big Blue Bus without cash, we have discounted Single Ride fares for those making contactless payments. When paying with a TAP card, the TAP app, or a mobile ticket, Regular customers can ride Big Blue Bus for only $1 each way; Senior/Disabled/Medicare (S/D/M) customers ride for just $0.40.
