Fares & Boarding

Have Your Fare Ready

Before traveling, be sure to have your fare ready. There are a variety of ways to pay.

Bus and shuttles fares can be paid in cash, with passes, tickets, or Norwalk Transit tokens.

Passengers using a Door-to-Door or paratransit service must board with a pre-paid ticket.

Boarding the Bus

If you are traveling by WHEELS Bus, be sure to arrive at the bus stop at least five minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. Board at the front of the bus and pay your fare.

Getting Off the Bus

About a block before you would like to get off the WHEELS Bus, signal to the bus driver using the system in the bus. Some buses have a yellow cord that you can pull and other buses have a push strip. Please don’t stand until the bus has fully stopped. Once the bus has stopped, exit through the rear door of the bus, if possible.
