The Transfer Pass is valid for the next connecting bus only, and expires 60 minutes from the time it is issued. Transfers cannot be used on the bus from which they were issued. The expiration time is printed on the Transfer Pass. When you board your connecting bus, simply drop the Transfer Pass in the slot. If the Transfer Pass has expired, the farebox will beep and alert you right away.
