    If a transfer to another bus line is needed, you may obtain a transfer from the bus operator at the time of boarding. A single use transfer may be purchased for an additional $0.10 or an all day transfer may be purchased for a price of two additional bus fares.

    Please Remember the Following Regulations:
    • You must ask the driver for a transfer when boarding the bus.  Transfers will not be issued at any other time during your trip. You cannot obtain a transfer when you exit the bus.
    • The transfer will have a “time issued” time printed on it.  You must catch the next available bus traveling the route to which you are transferring in order for the transfer to be valid.
    • All transfers are made at the Bus Terminals only ( Park Central; Wal-Mart/Kearney; Boonville; Battlefield Mall)
    • If the bus you are riding is more than five minutes late, no transfers are guaranteed. Occasionally buses are delayed by trains, traffic, construction, etc.
    • If on a combined route, this is not considered a transfer and you will be allowed to stay on the same bus. (line 4/13, 10/15, and 8/10) Drivers code as in-line transfer.
    • When you board the second bus, give your transfer to the driver or put in the fare box. Do not leave on the driver’s seat.
    • Transfers are not valid for making a round trip. For example, you may not ride the bus downtown, shop for 30 minutes and use the transfer to return home.
    • To transfer from Line 6 bus to the other Line 6 bus, you must have a transfer.
    • Transfers may not be sold or given away.
