Where to get it
For more information about these payment methods, please refer to the basic fares.
Simple and easy to use, it can be loaded on your Multi card at your usual retail outlet.
- More savings
- No need to have change to take a bus
- Paperless transfers
- Can be transferred if it is lost or stolen
- Soon rechargeable on line
You can put from $10 to $50 in your e-wallet.
(At some recharging sites, the e-wallet can be loaded in dollar increments only.)
2 ways to use the e-wallet:
- To pay for occasional trips by means of an e-fare
- Combine it with your pass to pay for supplements on express and interzone routes
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 or supplement 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.
Cash fare is a practical solution when you have to take the bus unexpectedly.
The exact fare in change is required. Pennies and bank notes are not accepted.
If you need to take more than one bus to reach your destination and are not using a Multi card, ask the driver for a transfer when you first board the bus.
You will not have to pay with an additional ticket or cash fare to take another bus.
The transfer is valid for 2 hours calculated from the time the bus leaves the terminus on the current trip. However, an exception applies to some trips on route 33 that have Les Promenades and Ottawa as the departure and arrival terminus, as well as all trips on route 96 in both directions. Riders on these trips are entitled to a transfer that is valid for 3 hours since the route is longer.
