O-Payment fare readers coming soon to Para Transpo

We’ve heard your feedback about the fare readers on Para Transpo, and we’re making a change. To bring you even more convenience when paying a fare, new O-Payment fare readers are being installed.

The same red O-Payment readers that you see on OC Transpo buses will soon be on Para Transpo minibuses.

Installation will take place over the summer. When all minibuses are complete, we’ll turn on the readers. 

Stay tuned for more information on how the readers work!
