What is a Transfer?

A transfer is a receipt issued to a passenger by the farebox after a cash fare is paid. A transfer is needed when you cannot get to your final destination on the first bus you board and need to transfer to a second bus to access another route. Transfers are free, but must be used before they expire. Transfers expire 75 or 105 minutes after issued, depending on issuing route. Any passenger may ask for a transfer when boarding the bus after the fare is paid. You should also tell the driver which bus route you will be transferring to.

Where can I transfer?

Transfers are accepted at multiple bus stops and transfer points throughout the system. Common timed transfer points include the Downtown Appleton Transit Center, Downtown Neenah Transit Center, Northland Mall, Fox River Mall, and Walmart (Grand Chute).
