Brantford Transit Rates

You can use the City of Brantford's transit service by paying a fare or using a pass.  Transit rates are as follows:

  • Adult: $3.00
  • Seniors: $3.00
  • Student: $3.00
  • Child (5 to 12 years old): Free
  • Child 4 years old & under): Free

You can apply for our B-Card. The B-Card is a smart card for our transit service. Once you purchase the card, you can continue adding value to it. B-Cards are available at our kiosk at the Brantford Transit Terminal. The B-Card is an interactive smart card introduced as part of the on-board fare collection system . The same size as a debit or credit card, the same B-Card can be used repeatedly. Value can be added to the B-card by either the staff at the Information Kiosk, or the B-machine located at the downtown terminal (64 Darling Street, phone 519-756-5011).

The B-Card works by “passing” it over the B-Card tag zone area on the new fareboxes, that says “touch here”, in order for the tag zone reader to recognize your card.

There are three types of B-Cards used including Disposable B-Cards, Multi-Value Refillable B-Cards and 31 Day B-Cards.
