Go-Pass Smart Card

PLEASE NOTE:  Effective January 1, 2012 an additional $5 activation fee will apply to all new and replacement reloadable Go Passes.

Paying by Cash: The electronic fare collection system does not accept paper money. As you enter the bus, deposit your coins (make sure you have exact change) in the fare box. It will automatically count your change and display what you have deposited to both you and the operator.

Transfers: Please ask the bus operator for a transfer slip if you need to make a connection along your trip. Transfer slips may also be used for return trips. Once your initial fare is registered in the fare box, the operator will print out a transfer with a bar code on it. This transfer slip can be used as proof of payment on any bus within 90 minutes. Just scan your transfer bar code on the fare box reader when you board your next bus.

Monthly Pass: Please re-use your Go-Pass card. Each month you simply take your re-usable Go-Pass to your closest Transit Pass Vendor and purchase another month of service. The Go-Pass is automatically reloaded.

Seniors & Discounted Bus Pass Program: If you are eligible for the Discounted Bus Pass Program, you must register at the Saskatoon Transit Customer Service Centre in the downtown transit terminal to receive your first Go-Pass card. Once registered, you will be able to reload your Go-Pass at any Transit Pass Vendor. Seniors may purchase a 6-month or 12-month Go-Pass at the Customer Service Centre. Seniors’ monthly and 3-month passes can be purchased and loaded onto the Go-Pass at any Transit Pass Vendor.

Pre-Paid Ride Packages: A Go-Pass card may be loaded with pre-paid fares at the Transit Customer Service Centre or any Transit Pass Vendor. One fare will be deducted each time you board the bus. A display on the fare box will tell you how much remains on your card each time you board the bus. To transfer, swipe the same card within 90 minutes on another bus and the system will recognise this as a transfer.

Day Pass: A disposable Go-Pass card is available for sale at the Saskatoon Transit Customer Service Centre. The card will expire 24 hours after the first time you swipe it. (It can be used for part of the following day as well.) The Go-Pass can be used as a family pass on weekends.

What happens if I lose my Go-Pass?
One of the benefits of the new Go-Pass Smart Card is that it can be personalized. If lost or stolen, the card can be deactivated and the value left on that card can be transferred to a new Go-Pass card. Personalization of your regular Go-Pass is voluntary and must be done at the Saskatoon Transit Customer Service Centre in the downtown transit terminal. Any replacements transferred to a new card must be done at the Customer Service Centre.  Effective January 1, 2012 an additional $5 activation fee will apply to all new and replacement reloadable Go Passes.
