VRE Transfer

Passengers transferring from the VRE system to a Fairfax Connector bus will be allowed a free, one-way transfer when boarding at a VRE station. Passengers must display valid VRE fare media (passes, tickets). Passengers returning on a Fairfax Connector bus to a VRE station are required to pay the full, applicable bus fare.

Guidelines

  • Please have your fare media (SmarTrip® cards, cash, passes) ready when boarding the bus.
  • Exact fare is required when paying by cash. Pennies are not accepted.
  • Drivers do not carry cash and do not make change.
  • Fairfax Connector no longer issues paper transfers. However, paper transfers from other systems will be honored.
  • Swipe your SmarTrip® card separately from other electronic-readable media to avoid malfunctions and misreads, including reading of information embedded in other media.
  • Fare media may be purchased at Connector Store locations.
  • Bus passes issued by regional bus systems, VRE passes, VRE Transit Link Cards, or MetroAccess ID cards can be used as valid fare media. Transfers using a SmarTrip® card are valid for making an unlimited number of bus-to-bus transfers, including round trips, within two hours of the first boarding. An additional fare may have to be paid when transferring between transit systems.
  • Full fares are discounted to the amounts on the fare chart for customers 65 years of age and older and persons with disabilities.
  • Seniors can receive a reduced fare by showing the bus operator a Medicare or Medicaid card and paying the fare in cash. However, the preferred method is to utilize a Senior SmarTrip® card. Individuals can acquire a Senior SmarTrip® card at any Connector Store or WMATA Commuter Store by showing proof of age and paying the $2.50 card purchase fee.
  • For information on receiving a reduced fare for persons with disabilities, visit WMATA's reduced fare program.
