HOW TO USE YOUR NEW FAREBOX Bus tickets will soon be replaced by ride cards. Until then effective Saturday July 10, 2010 all bus tickets will be handed to your bus operator. All monthly passes will remain the same for July and August. Please see illustrations below for new fare procedures that will be effective immediately. More information to follow for passes and ride cards.
COIN SLOT ONLY: For a cash fare, drop coins in slot one at a time. NO more pennies, Park N bus tokens or American coins. All rejected coins are returned to you through the dispenser on the front of the farebox.
BILL INSERTION SLOT: Lay bill flat and slide bill forward into bill slot.
SWIPE CARD READER: When a Weekend Family bus pass is purchased it will be swiped in this reader. The pass is always swiped right to left with magnetic stripe facing the passenger.
TRANSFER and RIDE CARD SLOT: If a transfer is required it will be dispensed from this slot. Please remove it. When boarding another bus with your transfer insert it into the same slot with the arrow facing down.
PASSENGER DISPLAY SCREEN: This screen shows the passenger what transaction is taking place and how much cash has been put in the farebox. This screen will show if your transfer is valid or declined.
