Ride All You Want for 2½ Hours

TransferIf you pay your fare in cash and you need to travel on more than one bus or train to reach your destination, ask the driver for a transfer when you pay your fare. Your transfer is good for unlimited rides at the same fare level in any direction for up to 2½ hours.* If you transfer to a higher fare, surcharges may apply.

If you pay your fare with a Go-To Card or pass, the transfer is automatically added to your card. If you transfer to a bus or train with a higher fare, the difference will be automatically deducted from any stored value on your card.

If you have a METRO ticket or use a SuperSaver, your transfer is built right in! No paper transfer is needed – simply insert your rail ticket or SuperSaver into the card reader on your next bus.

You cannot use a SuperSaver Stored Value Card if you transfer from bus to a METRO vehicle. Bus drivers no longer issue rail-only transfers. Get a Go-To Card for an easier way to pay your fare.

* does not apply to Downtown Zone fares

Note: If you are transferring from a local bus or METRO to an express bus during rush hour, you will be asked to pay the applicable surcharge of either 50¢ or 75¢. If you are transferring from an express bus operating in non-rush hour periods to an express bus during rush hour, the surcharge is 75¢.

If your transfer expires while riding a pay-exit bus, you will be asked to pay the full fare upon exiting. This does not apply to light rail.
