Its Never Been Easier To Get On The Bus

Our buses stop at designated bus stops along our regular routes. We also stop for passengers along the side of the road or at intersections; just wave to the driver. Please have your fare or pass ready when you board. Pick up a copy of our current schedule at City Hall or get one from our drivers. Free Transfers are available – valid up to 50 minutes from the time of issue from the downtown bus zone. All of our buses are equipped for access by persons with disabilities. Every bus is equipped with a bike rack.
