General nature of the card
The card is a type of fare medium.
You may load stored value and/or ride periods onto your card. Loaded stored value and ride periods are a prepayment of fares for our transit services. Cards, stored value, and ride periods are not “money”. You may not redeem cards, stored value, or ride periods for money or for any product or service other than a transit service included in the program.
The card does not entitle you to a specific fare price or fare product. At any time, and in our sole and absolute discretion, we may change the fare structure, any fare prices and the availability and eligibility criteria for any or all types of fares.
All cards are and remain our property, and you must return them to us immediately upon request. Our employees and authorized representatives have the authority to inspect, confiscate and/or demand the return of any card. We may deny services to, or require payment in cash from, anyone presenting an unauthorized card or product.
We reserve the right to suspend or deny any particular use of any element of the program, including, without limitation, by the Hotlisting of any card. We may do this if:
- The cardholder fails to comply with these Terms, or any other applicable terms, policies, rules, laws or regulations;
- A payment is not honoured due to non-sufficient funds or if a payment is rejected, negated or reversed for any reason; or
- We believe that someone has altered, duplicated, counterfeited, or stolen a card, or an ineligible cardholder has used a card.
Upon the Hotlisting or confiscation of a card, the refund of any amount remaining on the card will be at our discretion, and subject to such conditions as we deem fit, including the deduction of any amount we determine is due or payable by the cardholder to us.
Obtaining a card
You may obtain a card only from a Customer Service Centre, a retailer, or a third party. If applicable, you may obtain a Personalized card from a Customer Service Centre. We may issue a Personalized card to an individual who is eligible for the applicable special provisions in accordance with our then-current fare structure.
When you obtain your card, you must pay us the current applicable issuing fee. The term of each card is from the date of issuance to its expiry date. In our sole and absolute discretion, we may change the issuing fee. In our sole and absolute discretion, we may choose to waive or reduce the issuing fee for new cards during special promotions. Sales of cards are final and non-refundable. Cards are not transferrable.
You certify that all information that you provide to us is correct, accurate, up-to-date and complete, and that you shall notify us in the event of any changes to such information. We are not responsible for your failure to comply with this requirement.
We collect, use and disclose all personal information, that you provide in association with the program, in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. M.56, as amended or replaced from time to time, and with our privacy statement available on the website.
You must not duplicate a card or create a counterfeit card.
Registering a card
Registering your card allows you to:
- Report that it has been lost, stolen, or damaged, permit its Hotlisting, and take advantage of Balance Protection; and
- Be eligible for future benefits or promotions.
You may register your card in person at a Customer Service Centre, or online through the website. To register your card online, you will be required to create an account.
You must register your card if you are entitled to a reduced or free fare.
Adding stored value or ride periods to a card
You may add stored value and/or ride periods to your card in person or online.
In person: You may add stored value and/or ride periods to your card at a Customer Service Centre or a retailer. The added stored value or ride period will be available on your card immediately.
Online: You may load ride periods and/or stored value to your card online through the website using your credit card.
To load stored value and/or ride periods onto your card, you must make your payment to a third party or us. The electronic record in the program will constitute conclusive evidence of the stored value or ride period that was loaded onto your card and that remains unused or unexpired.
If you deal with a retailer, then the retailer, and not us, is responsible for the collection, storage, transmittal, safekeeping and use of payments and any information that you provide to the retailer when you purchase stored value or ride periods from that retailer.
You must not seek to load any stored value or ride period onto a card through an unauthorized means, or onto an unauthorized card through any means.
Autoload and Autorenewal
Rather than loading stored value or a ride period in a one-time transaction, you may make use of the Autoload or Autorenewal features. You may set up the Autoload or Autorenewal feature only if you have created an account through the website.
Once you have registered your card and created an account, you may set up an Autoload or Autorenewal function on your card.
An Autoload will top up the stored value on your card when the balance in your account goes below a minimum threshold. When the stored value goes below that minimum threshold, your account will be automatically topped up with an amount of your choosing (subject to these Terms), and your credit card will be charged with the cost.
You may also set up automatic ride period renewal on your card. The ride period extension set on your card will be automatically loaded onto your card and the program will charge your credit card. If there is no issue with payment, the system will activate your card on the first day of the Fixed Period. Autorenewal may not be available for all cards.
You may cancel your Autoload or Autorenewal feature by signing into your account online and following the applicable instructions.
If your credit card information changes, you must update your account at least 24 hours in advance of any Autoload or Autorenewal transaction in order to prevent disruption to your Autoload or Autorenewal function.
If the system is unable to process an Autoload or Autorenewal transaction for any reason, such as if your financial institution declines your credit card, then the system will not add the value to your card, as the transaction is not complete.
You are responsible for all transit fares and/or other charges incurred in the event that an Autoload or Autorenewal transaction fails for any reason.
Card billing errors and corrections
We reserve the right to correct the stored value on your card in the event of any clerical, billing, accounting, or other error. This may include the addition or removal of stored value from your card. We shall have no liability for any such error. You should monitor your transactions and stored value and notify us if you believe there is an error.
Using a card
When you wish to ride one of our transit vehicles by using your card, tap the card on the card reader in the vehicle. When you tap your card, the program calculates and deducts the fare from the stored value on your card, or validates that an active ride period is loaded on your card.
You will be required to make full fare payment by a means other than the card, subject to the other provisions of these Terms, if:
- The stored value or ride period which remains on your card is not sufficient for the fare; or
- The program is unable to deduct the necessary payment from the stored value or validate an active ride period.
You may not use a card for partial payment.
You may transfer between our vehicles in accordance with the provisions set out in our fare structure.
We may refuse to authorize a transaction involving a card if:
- The stored value on the card is insufficient (except as set out below);
- The ride period on the card has expired;
- The account or card has been suspended or closed; or
- Someone has reported the card as lost or stolen.
You must not deface or alter a card. We do not accept unauthorized, defaced, altered, duplicated or counterfeit cards or products.
Checking a card balance and recent history
You may check your card balance and recent transaction history by visiting a retailer or Customer Service Centre.
If you have created an account online, you may also check your balance and transaction history online.
Lost, stolen, damaged or defective card
You are responsible for taking all reasonable precautions to protect your card from being lost, stolen, defaced, altered, or damaged. The individual cardholder to whom we issued the card bears the risk of loss if the card is lost, stolen or damaged, up to the time when a registered card is blocked. A lost, stolen or damaged card may remain valid and you may continue to use any stored value or ride period loaded on the card to pay for transit services until you have used up the stored value or ride period, or the card expires. However, we may block a registered card from further use and transfer the balance to a new card in accordance with these Terms.
A retailer may not block or replace a lost, stolen, damaged or defective card.
Hotlisting of a card
If your registered card is lost or stolen, you should block your card or report it to us as soon as possible. Hotlisting of a registered card prevents anyone from using it, and protects your balance. A card that is not a registered card cannot be blocked or replaced.
Hotlisting of a card online: You may block a lost or stolen card by logging into your account. Online Hotlisting is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Hotlisting of a card online will prevent the usage of the card until we reactivate it. However, a reactivated monthly pass will only be valid for the month for which you purchased the pass.
Hotlisting of a card in person: You may block a lost or stolen card by reporting it in person at a Customer Service Centre during operating hours. Visit the website to see the hours of operation of the Customer Service Centres.
Hotlisting of a card by phone: You may report a lost or stolen card by calling Guelph Transit at 519-822-1811 during regular business hours. It may take up to two business days to block a registered card following a call to us.
For Hotlisting of a card in person or by phone, you will need to provide your name and address, and verify your identity.
Once the program has blocked a card, the card becomes inactive and cannot be reactivated or used again. You will need to obtain a replacement card and have any stored value or ride period transferred to your new card. The replacement
Card will be subject to an issuing fee. You will need to provide proof of identity in order to transfer your balance to a new card. We are not liable for any misuse of a lost or stolen reloadable card.
If you believe that your card is defective, you may seek to obtain a replacement card at no cost if:
- The card is returned to us at a Customer Service Centre within six months after the date it was issued; and
- The defect, as determined by a customer service representative in his or her sole discretion, was the result of a defect in design, material or workmanship and was not the result of misuse, intentional action, negligence or damage.
You must return a defective card to us at a Customer Service Centre and we shall block and deactivate it. We will transfer any stored value or ride period on the card to a replacement card. You cannot replace a defective card online.
Expiry of a card
Cards expire 10 years after issuance, unless designed to do otherwise by the requirements of a special fare program subject to additional terms that specify otherwise. All cards that would expire in less than 10 years, in accordance with any special provisions that apply to such cards, must be registered cards.
If your card is not a registered card, then we cannot transfer any stored value or ride periods remaining on it. You should ensure that you use up any stored value or ride periods before the expiry date.
If your card is a registered card, then you may transfer any remaining stored value or ride periods to a new card. After your registered card expires, any remaining stored value or ride periods will be available for 24 months, subject to earlier expiry in accordance with the term of such stored value or ride periods. We will not refund stored value or ride periods remaining on an expired card, but can transfer them to a new card in accordance with these Terms.
