Bus to port authority

I have a quick transit question. I am taking the bus 158 from fort lee to port authority on Sunday. The fare is $4.35 can I just hand the driver $5? Do I need a ticket? Do I need exact change? Don't laugh at me it's been awhile. THANKS!

All you have to do was download the schedule for the #158 and it says very CLEARLY -

This is a full service line. The driver will make change. $1, $5, $10, $20

dollar bills & most coins are accepted. Drivers are not required to accept

bills larger than a $20. Exact change is appreciated.

Customers departing from the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York

MUST have a ticket or pass to board a bus.

FYI you can buy a round trip ticket from the driver so you don't have to buy a ticket at the PABT

assuming you're heading into NYC did you know you can get across the George Washington Bridge by bus and then take the subway?
