DayPass

Why choose the DayPass?


  • You can ride the bus all day.
  • The whole family travels with one DayPass on Saturdays, Sundays or on statutory holidays.
  • It must be bought directly from the bus driver for exact change on the day of travel.
  • It can be bought using your PRESTO e-purse.

The DayPass allows unlimited travel all day, making it a great low-cost way for tourists, residents, and entire families to see the city.

The DayPass must be purchased directly from the bus driver for $8.10 on the day of travel.

Please be sure to bring the exact amount as the driver cannot make change.


The DayPass is valid as full fare on regular and express routes.

DayPasses are no longer available at vendors, but if you have a pre-purchased DayPass voucher, it will still be accepted on the bus.


Family Daypass


The DayPass is also the perfect way for families to travel and explore the city on Saturdays, Sundays or on statutory holidays, as up to six people can travel on one DayPass!

A "family" includes up to six people, with a maximum of two age 13 or older.
