No need to reapply for Community pass

Starting September 19, OC Transpo’s Community pass will automatically renew every two years for customers who are signed up. No need to reapply!

Community passes will only expire when a customer reaches the age of 65 or when they are no longer eligible for the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP).

We’ve been working directly with ODSP on this initiative to reduce steps for customers and improve your experience. Customer eligibility will be confirmed by ODSP and OC Transpo staff annually.

The Community pass offers customers registered for ODSP a reduced price for both single-ride fares and monthly passes. It is valid on all OC Transpo bus routes, the O-Train, and for Para Transpo trips.
