Q: What are the times that the buses run?
A: Each route runs on a different schedule. To see what time each route operates, view route schedules.
Q: When should I arrive at my stop?
A: You should arrive 5 minutes early to your stop. We strive to be “on time” but we may be a few minutes late or early occasionally.
Q: How do I transfer to another bus on the local service?
A: You may transfer at two locations, the terminal or Pullman Square. To do this, you ride your bus to either of those locations. Upon exiting the bus, ask your driver for a transfer slip. When you board your next bus, give the driver the transfer slip and be seated. If you paid cash and must pay 25 cents to transfer, hand your transfer to your driver before depositing 25 cents into the farebox.
If you paid with an unlimited pass, trip pass or ConnectCard cash value, a transfer will automatically be added to your card. Simply tap your card on the bus you are transferring to and your transfer will be deducted.
Transfers are valid one per trip and expire 1 hour and ten minutes from time of issue.
Transfers are not valid on the commuter service.

Q: How does The Bus assist people with disabilities?
A: The Bus makes all efforts to assist people with disabilities. All BTA buses are handicap accessible with wheelchair lifts. There are also wheelchair securing locations on each of the buses. Each bus also “kneels” or lowers to the ground to make boarding the bus easier. Visit our Accessibility page for more details on ADA Paratransit Service.
