Online Fare Loading

Online smart card registration and transit fare loading are now available for Ride CK services.

Register, Load or Purchase Smart Card Pass


*It can take up to 24 hours for the system to update.  Therefore, please make sure you load your Smart Card in advance to ensure the product is available when you tap your card on the bus. The system will use the current product until its exhausted, i.e. a 30-Day Pass will not be eligible for activation until the previous 30-Day Pass has expired. A 30-Day Pass will not be activated until it has been tapped on the bus for the first time.


Instructions for Online Card Loading

For detailed information on how to use the online loading portal please download User Guide (pdf).

*Please note the Accessible Pass and Affordable Pass cannot be initially purchased online but may be reloaded online. The Semester Pass cannot be initially purchased online and also cannot be reloaded online.
