Transferring

Need to ride more than one bus or train to reach your destination?

An interagency transfer allows you to board one additional Metro Bus, Metro Rail, or most other regional bus lines. Transfers are valid for two hours from time issued.

Tips about Interagency Transfers:

  • Transfers can only be purchased when boarding.
  • One paid base fare allows you to purchase one single-use transfer.
  • Transfers are accepted as base fare only. They can’t be used to pay for another transfer or an upgrade fee.
  • After your transfer expires or you board a second bus, you must pay another base fare if you want to ride yet another bus.
  • Altered or damaged transfers will not be accepted.

What transfers are accepted from other transit services?
