If you look older than 12 years old, you will need to show proof of your age to take advantage of the child discounts.

Setting the child discount on your Presto card

You need to activate your discount in person at an OC Transpo Customer Service Centre. While you are there, you can get a free child photo ID card that you can use as proof of age when you ride with transit. Once the discount is set, you can load your e-Purse and pay-per-ride at the reduced rate the next time you tap.

Using your adult Presto card to pay for your child's fare

You can pay for your child's fare with your Presto e-Purse:

  1. Let your driver know that you would like to pay an additional child fare
  2. Tap your card again
  3. Wait for your driver to hand you a Proof of Purchase (POP) transfer for your child
