Providing a safe transit journey requires a partnership with our riders. We have placed posters from the Department of Public Health aboard all buses to remind rides how they can keep themselves and others healthy.

In order to continue to provide reliable safe transportation to the Tri Town area, a $2.00 donation is requested when boarding the bus per trip, round trip would be $4.00. Exact change is requested. There is a $20.00 annual fee beginning October 1st of each year and prorated after that.
