Discounted Community Pass for ODSP recipients and Access Pass for Para Transpo customers


The discounted Community Pass reduces the cost of transit for:

  • Ottawa residents who receive Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) benefits

For other registered Para Transpo customers who also ride OC Transpo bus and train service, the Access pass can offer savings. The pass offers full fare on OC Transpo bus and train services, and a one third discount from the single-ride fare for trips on Para Transpo. If you are a Para Transpo customer who never uses OC Transpo bus and train service, you should not purchase the Access pass as it will not offer any savings.
