How to Pay Your Fare

On Westmoreland Transit buses, the fare is always paid as you board the bus. 

If you are paying with cash, deposit the exact fare into the farebox located at the front of the bus. 

If you are using a 10-Trip ticket, hand your ticket to the driver.  He or she will punch your ticket and return it to you if you.

If you are using a Monthly pass, show your ticket to the driver.

If you are using a 1/2 fare pass, please be prepared to show photo ID.

Transfers

An orange transfer coupon is issued if you must transfer to another bus in order to complete your trip.  This transfer is free and entitles you to travel within one zone in another direction.  It cannot be used on the same bus for a return trip.

If you require a transfer, please inform the driver of your originating trip.  Transfers are valid for one hour from the time of issue.
