Pay using cash or tickets
Please have the exact fare ready (you can overpay if you don't have the exact amount); drivers do not carry change. Put your money/tickets in the farebox located next to the driver. The farebox has a sign that tells you the fare.
If you are transferring, ask the driver for a paper transfer at the time you pay. Metro paper transfers are valid on only Metro buses. If you are paying cash and use more than one transit system you must pay a fare each time you board a different bus.
On Metro RapidRide buses, or when travelling on Third Avenue in downtown Seattle, the driver will always give you a paper transfer when paying with cash. This transfer also acts as your receipt for proof of payment. Keep it with you at all times when riding because a fare enforcement officer may ask to see it.
