  • Transfers

    Each Boarding Costs $1.25. Transfers between FRED buses can be done at any point at which routes intersect, but are most easily done at our main transfer locations (see section below). When transferring between buses, you will have to pay another $1.25. Your driver can help you to accomplish the transfer. For instance, should a driver be running a few minutes late, he or she may be able to radio ahead to request that your connecting bus wait for you. If you need assistance in making a transfer, please tell your driver as soon as you board the bus.
