OC Explained: Fare capping

You may have heard the term “fare capping” recently.

We recently expanded O-Payment across all bus fare readers and station fare gates. An exciting feature of O-Payment is “fare capping”. This means that customers who use the same credit card or mobile wallet to pay for their fares will never pay more than the cost of a DayPass or Adult monthly pass over the course of a day or month.

We caught up with Brad, Program Manager of Customer Technology Systems, to get his top “tap tips” when it comes to fare capping.
