Fare News

Paper bus tickets will soon be replaced

Tickets in their current format will only be on sale until Nov. 30, 2017. Use the Presto e-Purse or cash instead. It’ll cost you the same or less. On Para Transpo, use cash or money loaded on ParaPay. You’ll be able to use old tickets on the bus (but not on the O-Train Trillium Line) until April 30, 2018. Make the switch to Presto today! »

Help us test new fare gates and ticket machines starting in November

Customers who use the O-Train Trillium Line or catch a bus at Greenboro Station will soon be able to try out the new ticket machines and fare gates and tell us what they think of their experience. Testing will start at Carling Station and be rolled out to Carleton, Confederation and Greenboro Station. Staff will be on-site to help you use the new equipment anytime the O-Train is in service.
