Transportation tokens, Transit tokens or Bus tokens are tokens made for an operator of a transportation facility. They were used with his authority on his facility. Transportation tokens may include tokens used on toll roads, bridges, amusement rides, ferries, streetcars and buses.

Transportation tokens were accepted as payment for one fare, one half fare or one student fare. The majority of these tokens are 16mm or 23mm and had three main types of buses pictured.

The old bus type with the protruding front first appeared in 1924. A second type appeared in 1936. By 1952 a third type closely resembled a modern Greyhound type bus.

Mack Richard owned this livery stable which was located at the corner of Vine and Second streets. He would meet the trains at the depot on North Second and take them to O’Quinn’s Hotel. Round trip fare was twenty five cents, so a token was given as change for the ride from the hotel back to the depot. The token was used in the 1910s.
