New way to pay at Line 1 stations

Image - New way to pay at Line 1 stations

We're introducing a new way to pay your fare at O-Train Line 1 Stations. As a trial, you can tap to pay with your credit card and smartphone mobile wallet at specially marked white fare gates. Only single-ride Adult fares will be charged at these gates during the trial period, and no transfers will be issued.

We invite everyone to give it a try!

Tap to pay

Tap to pay for a single-ride Adult fare with:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Google Pay*
  • Apple Pay*

*Only if loaded with Visa or Mastercard credit cards.

The following cards are not accepted:

  • American Express
  • Visa gift card
  • Mastercard gift card
  • Visa debit
  • Mastercard debit
  • Debit

Tapping tip

Tap your card or phone, not your wallet, to prevent "card clash" when paying.

You cannot tap to pay for other fare types, including discounted fares, monthly passes, and DayPasses, during the trial period.

Transactions will appear on your credit card statement. If you have any questions about charges, call Customer Service at 613-560-5000.

No transfers issued

During the trial period, no transfers will be issued when paying with the new option. Transfers can only be made in fare-paid zones where you do not need to show your fare again.

Transfers for fares paid by tapping credit cards or smartphones will be available in 2023, based on the results of this trial. 

You can make a second trip by train within the 90-minute transfer window without being charged. Be sure to pay with the same card at the specially marked fare gates at Line 1 stations.

Where to tap

Tap to pay at the specially marked white fare gate. All regular payment options (Presto, U-Pass, barcode transfers) continue to work at this fare gate too.

Tap your credit card or smartphone mobile wallet on the front or the top card reader.
