Transfers

CTtransit Local Routes

Free transfers are valid for unlimited rides on local CTtransit buses, going in any direction, for two hours from time issued, until printed time and date of expiration. A transfer is issued at the time the fare is paid upon boarding.

Starting in May 2017, fare boxes on board 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.

CTtransit Express

Starting in May 2017, express transfers (2-Hour passes) will retain the full value of the original zone fare paid, providing unlimited local and express rides for the number of zones paid. Travel on a route that charges a higher zone fare would require additional payment.
