PARA TRANSPO

Presto cards loaded with a monthly pass can be used to ride Para Transpo. Para Transpo cannot accept Presto e-purse to pay per trip, as Para Transpo vehicles are not equipped with Presto readers. You can also continue to use paper tickets, passes or cash.

PAPER PASSES AND TICKETS

Paper passes and tickets are still available at OC Transpo vendors across the city.
