Not Sure How To Plan Your Bus Trip?



  1.  Find your bus stop and stand by the sign. Have exact change ready, or use the convenient Connect Card or ZipPass app. When the bus approaches, look for the route name and number on the top front of the bus. Wave to the bus operator to stop.         
  2. Board the bus and place exact change in the fare box (bills or coin), show your valid pass, or activated mobile pass or tap your Connect Card.       
  3. One block before your destination, pull the overhead cord once to ring the bell, which also turns on the "request stop" light.      
  4. Exit through the back doors.
