While most transfers are free, transfers to VCTC Coastal Express or Conejo Connection are $1.50. Transfers to Camarillo Dial-A-Ride are $1.00. Transfers to Valley Express are $0.50. All applicable fees are payable upon boarding your second bus with your transfer.

To use a transfer, follow these steps:
