September 23 is $1 Ride Day for STL buses on the regular network. It costs very little to try out a sustainable mode of transportation where you’re free to listen to a podcast or read a book during your commute.
Already have a monthly pass? Even if you’re not taking advantage of this special fare, you’re making the right choice by taking public transit!
If you’re not used to taking the bus, here are a few tips and tricks to get you ready.
Just enter your departure and destination address in the trip planner. You have the option to plan your trip based on the date and time of departure or the intended arrival time. You can also set preferences for an accessible route or to avoid transfers.
You can go online to see bus arrival times for your stop. You can also print or email the information. Once you’re at the stop, it might be handy to check when the next bus is arriving by texting your stop number (5 digits indicated at the bottom right of the bus stop sign) to 511785. You will get the next bus arrival times in just a few seconds. That’s what we call real-time information.
We accept payment by cash (exact amount) or by credit card on all our buses. The special $1 Ride Day fare is valid on STL buses only. If you need to take the metro or go to Montréal or the North Shore, you need to purchase an All Modes AB fare in advance. More details here.
Technology advances, but not all technology advances at the same pace. You will find three machines near the bus driver. If you want to know where to insert your cash or tap your credit card, be sure to read our section on accepted payment methods.
Some trips require more than one bus to get to your destination. In such case, you need to ask the driver of the first bus for a transfer ticket to continue your trip on the second bus at no extra cost.
When paying by cash, it’s important to ask for a transfer ticket.
When paying by credit card, the card reader recognizes that the card has already been charged a fare when you tap your card on the second bus. A transfer ticket is therefore not required when paying by credit card. A transfer is valid for 120 minutes and cannot be used on the same bus route, nor for a round trip.
