Remember to Register Your OneCARD Online

The benefit of having your bus pass registered is that you will be able to log online and report it missing or stolen, which will block your card. That is, no one can use your missing 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 blocked 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.

STride Passes

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 will be required to pay the cash fare. If you do not have your fare, service will not be provided.

Lost or Stolen Items

The City of Woodstock does not give refunds for any lost, stolen or confiscated transit passes. Be sure to register your card online.

If your card is not registered, your information/rides are lost and you will be responsible for replacing these at your cost.
