To save money use the LINX Card which is an electronic, reloadable transit fare card that helps make travelling on transit easy and convenient. Linx Transit money is loaded on to the Linx Card and when you use the card on the bus, the Adult fare will be discounted 10% and Seniors/Students will receive a discount of 15% in transit cash. 

​When you register and sign up, you can manage your balance online or you can ask the driver for a print out of your remaining passes.
