No Cash? No Problem

The electronic fare collection system automatically collects and processes non-cash fares for public transit by way of debit or credit. Fare purchased through the HotSpot App will also be validated on these devices. The HotSpot app allows transit riders to buy a single ride pass or a monthly pass from their mobile device. 

Bus transfers

Transfer passes are free of charge one way. A customer can ask the operator for a transfer pass when connecting on another bus during their trip. Transfers are valid one way and available upon request for a returning trip.  Transfers are not required when using a pass.
