Passengers can now tap their Interac debit card on any fare gate or bus to ride on OC Transpo. The introduction of Interac debit to the existing O-Payment options makes it even easier to take OC Transpo.

With daily and monthly fare capping, users will never be charged more than the price of a DayPass (C$11.75) or monthly pass (C$128.75). Once passengers hit the cap, they ride for free.

“Millions of people use Interac debit cards every day. Some people may not have a credit card, and casual riders may not have a Presto card. Adding Interac Debit provides our residents with a convenient choice for everyday purchases like riding OC Transpo,” said Mayor Mark Sutcliffe.

“Riding transit should be an easy choice. Adding the ability to pay your fare with an Interac Debit card just made that choice easier. Its addition to existing O-Payment options is one of OC Transpo’s Five-Year Roadmap commitments to improve the rider experience by offering convenient and flexible fare options,” added Councillor Glen Gower, Chair of the Transit Commission.

Glenn Wolff Chief Client Officer, Interac Corp, said: “When transit authorities add Interac Debit to their networks, they are offering riders a payment option that almost 30 million Canadians already use for day-to-day purchases. As a contactless payment option, Interac Debit provides a convenient way to pay fares without having to purchase a separate transit card. Paying for transit should be as easy as buying a cup of coffee. Today’s announcement helps to make that a reality.”
