Frequently Asked Questions
Can I 'Flag' or 'Wave' Down a Bus If I Am Alongside a Street Which the Buses Go Down?
No. The Transit Connect only stops to pick up or drop off passengers at 260 Brown street Parking lot or the Dune park South Shore Train Station at boarding locations only.
Can I Schedule a Deviation?
No! This is an express bus service with no route stops. Deviations are not scheduled or permitted for this service.
What Is a Transfer & How Do I Use It?
Transfers are a way for riders to get from one area of town to another. For example, if you are picking up the Green Route on the east side of town but would like to go to the 260 Brown street station on the west side of town, you could transfer from the Green Route onto the Yellow Route since the Green does not go to Brown street but the Yellow does. There are two transfer locations: Valplayso on Glendale and at the corner of Indiana and Michigan downtown Valparaiso.
Can I Bring Luggage or Bags onto the Bus?
Yes, you may bring luggage onto the bus. Any bags you bring on-board must not prevent any other passenger from the use of a seat next to you. If you have large luggage, you may be asked to place your luggage at the rear of the bus in order to keep the aisle and seats open.
Where can I purchase a ticket?
Tickets can be purchased with cash when boarding the bus or on the Transit Token Mobile App.
