Whether you’ve used transit in the past or you’re curious to try it for the first time, OC Transpo has affordable and flexible options for travelling to your office and back, any day of the week.
Together, OC Transpo and STO provide service to all major Government of Canada workplaces and major employers within the urban boundary with fare options for everyone.
OC Transpo has lots of capacity to welcome more riders back to the system. Public transit is much more affordable than filling up your car and the price of parking. Returning to office work also brings more traffic on our roads, and transit is more convenient than being stuck in gridlock, giving you more time in your day.
OC Transpo is excited to welcome back new and returning customers. Transit habits a little rusty? Here’s some helpful tips to support your commute:
- OC Transpo’s travel planner is a great tool to find information about your bus or train schedule. You can text 560560, call 613-560-1000 or view the next departures widget on their homepage.
- Did you know that Presto cards are shareable? OC Transpo has fare options for frequent and occasional riders. You can find the one that fits your travel needs on OCtranspo.com.

Over the past three years, OC Transpo has made significant investments in improving your commute. You can now tap to pay at fare gates at Line 1 stations or connect to Wi-Fi and grab a coffee from Happy Goat Café at some O-Train stations.
