Photo ID cards
Photo ID cards can be purchased at the Charles or Ainslie Street Terminals. You will need to show proof of senior status to purchase the ID card. Senior ID cards do not expire and do not need to be renewed.
Reduced monthly pass
The reduced monthly pass provides unlimited ridership on all GRT routes for one calendar month.
The monthly pass is on sale from the 20th of the preceding month until the 15th business day of the current month.
Reduced passes are available at the Ainslie and Charles Street Terminals and most Sobeys and Zehrs stores across the region. You will need your photo ID to purchase a reduced monthly pass.
GRT will not refund or replace monthly transit passes for any reason. The pass is non-refundable and not transferrable.
Reduced fare tickets
Seniors can buy strips of reduced fare tickets at a savings of 29 per cent off the cash fare.
Reduced tickets are available at the Ainslie and Charles Street Terminals, most Sobeys and Zehrs stores, and many other locations across the Region.
Paying your fare with a reduced ticket or pass
As you board the bus, show your GRT senior photo ID to the operator. Your pass should have the serial number of your senior photo ID card inscribed with ink, ballpoint or felt marker.
Transit tax credit
The cost of monthly passes can be claimed for a federal transit tax credit. Be sure to keep expired passes as proof of purchase. GRT does not issue receipts.
