B-Cards

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 is added to the card by either Brantford Transit staff or the Customer Service Kiosk 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.
