Mobile Ticketing Now Available

MOBILE TICKETING AD CHRISTMAS LIGHTING

You can now purchase your Link Transit fare media using your smart phone.

When you download the Token Transit app, you will have access to single ride tickets, day passes, and a new "rolling" 31-day pass, all with just a few clicks. You will need a credit card to set up your payment account, and an internet connection is required in order to purchase your pass. An internet connection is also required to use your pass for the first time, and for multi-day passes to refresh every day.

Single ride tickets are valid for 30 minutes after activation, so make sure you don't activate  the ticket until your bus is within sight. Day passes are good until midnight of the day they are activated. And the monthly pass is valid for 31 days from the date of activation. So you can purchase the pass at any time during the month.

Once your pass is activated, you open the pass and show your phone screen to the coach operator, just as you would a regular paper pass.

Another great feature of Token Transit is the ability to send a pass to another person's phone. If you are a parent who wants to buy a pass for your kid, you can click here to go to to the Token Transit site and purchase and send any type of pass to anyone you know who may need to use transit. The recipient will get a text message with a link to download the Token Transit app. When they log into the app using their mobile phone #, their pass will be waiting for them.

The app is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Here is a short video on how the process for purchasing and using your transit fare.

Please Yield To Buses

YIELD TO BUSES BIG BOX ADEvery day, more and more people are riding Link Transit to get where they need to go. This means that along all our urban area routes, every few blocks a bus may stop to pick up or drop off passengers, pulling out of traffic when there is room to do so. Sometimes this is not possible depending on the configuration of the roadway and the width of the parking lane.

If you happen to be behind a bus when it is signaling to get back into traffic, we ask that you please yield to the bus. This allows the bus driver to safely merge back into traffic while maintaining their schedule for those riding the bus, and waiting further down the route for the bus to arrive on schedule. It only takes a few seconds for the bus to get moving again, and then everyone can continue safely on their way.

Our drivers and our passengers thank you for this courtesy.

Take Your Bike With You!

All Link Transit buses and trolleys are equipped with bike racks to make it easy to take your bike with you. This allows you to extend your travel past where the bus might take you, to use your bike for mid-day errands, or to return home at night. It is easy and there is no extra charge to take your bike.

Just a heads up though, the bike racks on Routes 20, 21, and 22 hold three* bikes, and all other routes hold two bikes. During the summer, there are often capacity issues, so it is best to try to board with your bike at the beginning of the trip, either at Columbia Station or at the other end, whereever that may be. BIkes cannot be brought inside buses, so please have an alternate plan in the event there is no room on the buses.

*There may be a trip sometime during the day on these routes where a bus with two bike capacity is used. 

The racks are easy to load and very quick. For a short video on how to load your bike, click here.
