How to use your OneCARD

Monthly passes are no longer issued by calendar month.  A monthly pass is valid for a month from the first day that it is activated on the bus.  For example, if you purchase or load your smart card from your computer at the beginning of November (November 2nd), but do not actually take the bus until mid-November (November 12th), your pass will be valid until mid-December (December 11th). The pass is valid for only a month from the date the card is first used on the bus.

You also have the ability to have several fare options on one card.  For example, you could load a monthly adult pass and three (3) individual rides.  Please note, the monthly pass will be used first before any other fare. The fare validator does not have the ability to choose various fares. It will always read the monthly pass first.

Fare rates

Exact change is required when paying for the single cash fare. Our drivers will not have the funds to make change. If you do not have the proper cash fare or a proper transit pass, service will not be provided.

Please note that our STride passes are for current and returning students only.  Drivers may ask for proof to validate that the user is a student.  A valid student card or letter on school letterhead confirming enrollment is considered proof.  If you do not have proof that you are a student, you are then required to pay the cash fare of $2.50. If you do not have your fare, service will not be provided.

The City of Woodstock does not give refunds for any lost, stolen or confiscated transit passes. You will be responsible for replacing these at your cost.
