O-Payment

Tap and ride with O-Payment

O-Payment — pay your fare by tapping your credit card or mobile wallet at fare readers on buses and fare gates at O-Train Line 1 stations.

When you tap your credit card or mobile wallet, the screen on the fare reader or fare gate will turn green and show "Accepted". You will be charged a regular Adult fare. Paper transfers are not issued for O-Payment. Tap using the same credit card or mobile wallet to transfer between trips on buses and the O-Train. You won’t be charged again as long as you are within the regular transfer window.

O-Payment is not available on STO and cannot be used to transfer to Para Transpo. Presto is still your best option if you:

  • regularly transfer between OC Transpo and STO.
  • regularly transfer between buses, the O-Train and Para Transpo.
  • are eligible for a discounted fare.

Ride as much as you want! If you tap outside of the transfer window, you will be charged another Adult fare. But you’ll never be charged more than the price of a DayPass over a period of a day. Each month, you will not be charged more than the price of an Adult monthly pass. The fare is calculated each night and then charged to your card.

The following payment types are accepted:

  • Visa card
  • Mastercard
  • Google Pay
  • Apple Pay

The following cards are not accepted:

  • American Express
  • Prepaid credit cards
  • Visa gift card

Getting started

Before you are able to register a new account or add a new card to an existing account, you must complete a trip on O-Train or a bus using a credit card or mobile wallet.

Within a day or two, you will then receive a payment charge on your bank statement connected to the trip you completed. It will contain a Service Reference ID (SRID), which is a 13 or 14 character long combination of letters and numbers, and the amount paid for the trip.

Use this information to register or add a new card on the O-Payment website. (Note: The SRID must be entered in uppercase letters). Once you register, you'll be able to track your taps.
