The Ride
St. Joseph Transit “The Ride” eight fixed routes that encompass the city limits of St. Joseph and Elwood, Kansas. Curb-to-curb route deviations are available, on a scheduled or walk-on basis, to all users of the transit system regardless of ability. The following services are available at the transit administrative office:

  • Ticket books and monthly passes 
  • Half-fare photo identification cards (seniors 60 years and older and disabled persons) 
  • Bus route, schedule, and general information 
  • Schedule deviations
  • Jefferson Lines tickets

Token Transit
St. Joseph Transit bus passes can now be purchased using a new mobile fare app, Token Transit. Token Transit is a free app that allows riders to purchase their bus passes on their smart phones using a credit or debit card. The app displays a digital pass, eliminating the need for a paper pass. It also eliminates the need to purchase a monthly pass at a specific time. The digital pass is valid for 31 days, starting whenever the pass is activated. Customers may also purchase single ride tickets, 10-Ride Ticket Books and Deviations. The app allows customers who are eligible for a discounted fare (seniors, disabled, and youth riders) to purchase their discounted fares. To learn more about how to get the app on your phone, click here.

Bicycles are welcome on St. Joseph Transit. There are special bike racks mounted on the front of every bus which will securely hold two bikes. The racks are very easy to use. Simple instructions are printed on the racks. Don’t forget to take your bike with you when you leave!

Motorized bikes, two-seated bicycles, and tricycles are not allowed. Also, bikes with really fat tires may not fit in the racks. If the bike rack is full, you will have to wait for the next bus. Bikes are not allowed inside the bus.
