Where to buy bus fare and OnYourWay fare card

The Guelph Transit administration office is open by appointment only. The Guelph Museum and recreation facilities are closed. Visit guelph.ca/COVID19 for more details.


Only Adult OnYourWay fare cards can be purchased at authorized retailers and Guelph Public Library main branch. However, Adult and Reduced fare cards can be reloaded at any City facility or authorized retailer.

If you are eligible for a Reduced fare card (youth, senior, post-secondary or Affordable Bus Pass), the first card must be obtained at ServiceGuelph or the Guelph Transit administration office. Tell customer service staff what card you need to ensure you receive the correct fare category.

Alternatively, you can pick-up a blank card with no dollar value on it at a designated retailer (refer to chart). Once you get the card, please email [email protected] or call 519-822-1811 and provide:

  • Your name
  • Type of card you’re needing to activate (youth, senior, post-secondary, Affordable Bus Pass)
  • Your proof of eligibility
