Use of Transfers

One free transfer may be issued when paying your fare. Please ask for transfers when boarding. These conditions apply to transfers:
  • Tell the driver you need to transfer when boarding
  • Good only at time shown
  • Good only on day of issue
  • Cannot be used to return on same route
  • Must be handed to driver upon boarding

JTS will make every reasonable effort to ensure you make your transfer.  However, JTS cannot guarantee transfer connections due to variations in traffic and weather conditions.

Reminder Regarding Fare Materials - Outdated fare media (for example, ten-ride punch passes) will be exchanged for updated fare media at the JTS Office for one month following a fare increase, provided the paper fare media is unused (no punches). To receive an exchange, the difference in cost must be paid at the time of exchange. Used fare media (such as a partially punched pass) must be used within one month following a fare increase.
