    E-Wallet

    Simple and easy to use, it can be loaded on your Multi card at your usual retail outlet or on line in My Profile. You can pay your occasional trips by means of an e-fare.

    • Paperless transfers
    • Can be transferred if it is lost or stolen
    • Can be loaded on line in My Profile

    (At some recharging sites, the e-wallet can be loaded in dollar increments only.)

    When you pass your card in front of the reader when boarding the bus, the reader:

    • Confirms that your trip is valid
    • Debits the fare from your e-wallet
    • Displays the balance available on your e-wallet

    A fare debited from your e-wallet entitles you to an e-transfer that is valid for 2 hours starting from when you first boarded an STO bus.

    Simply pass your card in front of the reader again during the validity period and the transfer will be accepted.

    See the Frequently Asked Questions for more details about the e-wallet.

    The Occasional Multi

No matter who uses it, the Occasional Multi lets you pay for your trip using an e-fare. It can be loaded at the service points and retail outlets.

    The Occasional Multi is the Multi that lends itself well!

    In addition:

    • It is cheaper than a paper ticket
    • There is no need for change to take a bus
    • Paperless transfers
    • the balance is protected if it is lost or stolen 
    • It can be loaded at one of the service points and recharging sites

    You can put from $10 to $110 on it

    By tapping the card on the reader when boarding the bus, the reader:

    • Confirms that your trip is valid
    • Debits the fare from your Multi card
    • Displays the balance available on your Occasional Multi

    A fare debited from your Multi entitles you to an e-transfer that is valid for 2 hours starting from when you first boarded an STO bus.
    Simply tap the reader again during the validity period and the transfer will be accepted.
