You will initially begin by accessing the bridge page, here. You will then select your route, designating from which blockchain you wish to transfer your tokens, and to which blockchain you wish for them to arrive. For reference, you can notice the image below.

Choose the specific asset you are looking to transfer before finally completing your transaction by clicking the ‘Connect Wallet’ option.

Your wallet will then prompt you to approve the choice you’ve made. After this, you will be required to enter the address of the destination blockchain in the ‘Recipient Address’ field.  Finally, enter the amount of assets you want to send in the Amount to send field.

If using MetaMask for example, you will once again be prompted to grant approval of spending before sending money. Click the ‘Send’ button to trigger the send transaction before confirming it in the wallet. Upon approving the transaction will be met with a waiting page, on which you can access the link to the block explorer as evidenced below.

After the transaction comes up as successful, you will then have the chance to connect the wallet of your destination blockchain (what you previously entered on the ‘To’ field) and receive your designated assets.

Select ‘Connect Wallet’, to choose your relevant wallet, and then select ‘Receive’ as can be viewed below, to trigger the transaction you have initiated.
