Details

This unused transfer ticket is marked for the 12th day of the month which would have connected a passenger to locations around Frederick which the motorman or conductor could have punched to show the passenger’s destination.

Transfers were special tickets provided to a passenger when they had paid the entire fare to reach a destination but would have to change to a different trolley or in some cases to a bus to reach that destination.

In order to ensure that the ticket is used as intended, the trolley crewman providing the ticket would make sure that it was marked for the day, time of day and destination. Ticket holders would be required to use the transfer on the next available trolley traveling to or past their destination or else the ticket would be voided and they would lose the money they had paid for the fare.
