easyPASS fare card at one of the above locations for $2, then load on any whole-dollar amount (no "cents") from $10 to $80. We recommend an even amount to avoid having a dollar left over at the end.
Each time you get on a BWG Transit bus, just swipe your easyPass against the card reader, and $2 will automatically be deducted.
You can use one
easyPASS fare card for your entire family - just tell the driver before you swipe your card.
easyPASS fare cards are not registered, which means a lost card cannot be replaced, so please take care not to lose it.
What happens if I lose my
Please treat your
easyPASS fare card as cash, as it cannot be tracked or replaced if lost. To protect yourself from loss or theft, we encourage users to load only the amount you will need for a few weeks at a time, and we have capped the amount you are permitted to load on the card at $80.
Why do I have to pay $2 for an easyPASS?
The $2 is to help offset the costs of the passes (not just the plastic card but also the hardware and software required to sell them) so that it does not become a taxpayer expense, and to encourage re-use of the cards.
Why aren't there more locations to buy an easyPASS?
In order to load money on an
easyPASS, the seller requires special computer hardware and software. We are open to opportunities to expand sale locations, but in the immediate future we are limited to Town facilities.
What if I get on the bus and my
easyPASS is empty or only has $1 on it?
You can pay the cash fare, or you can turn in your
easyPASS to the driver for one "free" ride. If you turn in the card, then when you obtain a new one you must pay the $2 new card fee. To avoid ending up with a single dollar on your card, we suggest always loading an even amount (e.g. $24 instead of $25).
Can I use my PRESTO card on BWG Transit?
No, you must either pay the cash fare or use an
easyPASS on BWG Transit buses. This is a less expensive alternative for both the Town and transit users.
Do you offer different rates for seniors or students? What about monthly passes?
At this time, we are offering the same low fare for all riders age 5 and up. As interest in the service grows we may be able to offer more fare options and programs.
Can I get a receipt or record of my
Yes - just go to any of the pass sale locations mentioned above and provide your
easyPass. Staff can look up the pass number and provide a printed record of pass use.
