B-Card orders can be placed directly with dispatchers.

The B-Card is an interactive smart card and is part of our new on-board fare collection system that Brantford Transit launched in December 2007. The B-Card is the same size as a debit or credit card. Drivers of Brantford Lift will have portable hand handle readers, customers simply hold the card over the tag zone to pay the fare. The portable reader recognizes what type of fare or pass is on the card and approves or denies the ride, electronically, in about a second.

Once you buy your first B-Card, you keep using the same card, week after week, month after month. Value is added to the B-card by either the staff at the Information Kiosk, the B-machine located at the downtown terminal (64 Darling Street, phone 519-756-5011), or your Brantford Lift driver will be able to reload your B-Card. The value that you wish to purchase will be added to your card at that time.

The new 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.
