(Names in bold are the stations in which the Express service makes stops.)
Fares are paid through an Electronic Prepaid Card which can be purchased and refilled at any station in the system. There is a flat fee of S/. 2.50 (2.50 new soles, approximately US$ 0.83) for regular commuters. This originally was S/. 1.50, but it was raised in December 2012 to S/. 2.00 and then raised again so that by February, 2015 (or earlier) it became S/. 2.50. The card can be bought at a vending machine, which is available on every station, and will cost S/. 4.50. It can be charged up to S/. 100.00. The machines accept both coins and bills, but payment with bank cards (either debit or credit) is not possible.
There are separate Electronic Prepaid Cards available for students, either for university or for normal schools. These can only be obtained through a sales office, and are put on name. These are charged a lower rate, but can be recharged at the same vending machines. Firefighters as well as members of the police are not required to pay and do not have to possess any of these cards.
The buses are powered by natural gas, purchased from manufacturers such as King Long and Bonluck. These buses are articulated (split into two sections with an accordion-like rotating middle to allow sharp turns), between 18 and 19 meters long and can carry up to 120 passengers. The system uses around 300 of these gray-colored buses.
Smaller buses (in bright yellow and orange) are used as part of a feeder bus network available at each of the main stations (Naranjal, Estacion Central and Matellini). Those in yellow can carry up to 80 passengers while the orange ones only up to 40.
