Transfers to Valley Express Fixed-Route are free. Transfers to Valley Express Dial-A-Ride are $0.50. All applicable fees are payable upon boarding your second bus with your transfer.

To use a transfer, follow these steps:

2. Exit the bus at your transfer point and wait for your second bus. Transfer is valid for 120 minutes from the time it is issued.
3. When your second bus arrives, insert your transfer into the farebox along with any applicable fees.
4. Transfers using VCbuspass occur automatically, no paper transfer will be given.

Transfers may not be used for stopovers and cannot be used for a return trip.
