Conventional & Specialized Transit Fare Structure

We use the "exact fare" system. Fares can be paid by cash or a pass. Transit Operators do not carry change. Sales locations for passes and ride cards are listed further below. 

Free Transit: March 20–April 6

Riders must board and exit the bus from the rear door only. Please consult the Live Bus Map on MyRideBarrie.ca before departing on your trip to track your bus. Barrie Transit may be experiencing intermittent service issues on some routes. The Downtown Transit Terminal remains open and City staff continues to increase sanitizing practices in the terminal and on all Barrie Transit buses.

It is critical for people to have the ability to ride the bus to get basic things like groceries or to jobs that we rely on. Offering free transit creates the opportunity to have riders board from back door, which reduces risk to transit operators and further supports social distancing.

  • Transfers

    Passengers can transfer routes at any point where two routes connect. Passengers must request a transfer when they first board the bus it they require a transfer to continue along their route. When boarding a bus with a transfer, passengers must scan the barcode transfer ticket on the fare box. If, for any reason  the fare box scan option is not available, passengers must then present the transfer to the Operator unfolded and date-side up for inspection. Transfers must NOT be placed in the fare box. A transfer is valid for one hour (60 minutes) from the time of issue and is valid as part of  one continuous trip from origin to destination. Please retain your transfer if you need to travel on multiple buses to arrive at your destination. Transfers are non-transferable and have no cash value.
