The benefit of having your bus pass registered is that you will be able to go online and report it lost or stolen. No one can use your lost or stolen card and your remaining rides will be transferred to your new card.  We will receive a notification noting that your card has been lost/stolen and we will activate a new card for $5.00  Once your card is processed, we will contact you to let you know when you can pick up your new card. This process does take some time, so please call ahead to be sure your card is ready for pick up.

If you forget to register your card, all this information will be lost and you will need to purchase a new card.

Visit our Frequently Asked Questions webpage for information about how to use the Woodstock Transit e-Fare System.


A 30-Day Pass (Adult, Senior or Student) becomes activated the first time the pass is tapped on the bus.  

Example: If you purchased your pass on November 2 but you did not take your first ride until November 13, your bus pass will expire at the end of the service day on December 12.
