Changes to Transfers (2-Hour Passes) & All-Day Passes Issued On-Board Buses

Tue Apr 04
Starting in May 2017, fare boxes onboard CTtransit local, express, and CTfastrak buses will issue Transfers (2-Hour Passes) and All-Day passes using bar-code reading technology rather than magnetically encoded stripe technology. The bar code is printed on the front of the pass. Scan the bar code on the window with the red light on the fare box—a tone will sound indicating acceptance.
