Guelph Transit’s monthly swipe bus pass is a plastic card, similar to a credit card. Currently only Adult, Youth and Senior monthly passes are swipe passes. The swipe pass will require that you swipe your monthly bus pass through the card reader on the fare box.
If you are not able to swipe your pass through the card reader as a result of your disability, please show your valid monthly pass to the driver when you board the bus so that they can visually verify your pass.
Guelph Transit Specialty Passes, which include the War Veteran Pass, Retiree Pass, Day Pass, PAL Card, University of Guelph Student Identification Card, and the City of Guelph Employee Annual Pass, are not swipe passes. Please continue to show to the driver your specialty pass when boarding the bus for visual verification.
Please remember print your name and phone number on the back of your monthly swipe pass. If you lose your pass and it is returned to Guelph Transit, we will contact you using this information.
- Swipe your bus pass in the fare box with the magnetic stripe facing you. The swipe pass must be swiped from right to left.
