If the bus you are riding doesn't go to your final destination, then you may transfer to another bus. Transfers are free and valid for 90minutes on any route. Transfers must be requested when paying your fare. If you're not sure where or how to transfer, just ask your driver for help.
Take the bus to a transfer point, or to where two routes meet. Wait for your connecting bus at the appropriate bus stop or shelter (see system map or individual route maps). If you are using a valid 24-hour, 7-day and 31-day pass, you do not need a transfer.
Some RTC RIDE routes flow through or change from one route to another route. For example, you can get on a Route 11 bus outbound, ride it to RTC CENTENNIAL PLAZA where it changes to a Route 21 bus, and continue to ride to East Sparks without transferring. These are called "flow-through" routes. They are shown on the schedule in the two outside columns ("Comes from Route" and "Changes to Route").
