As of January 2013, transit is free for seniors in Oakville! Seniors (65 years and older) are able to ride free on transit in Oakville all day, every route, every Monday in 2013. Seniors will be to have proof of age available in case required (I know you all look so young no one will believe you’re a Senior, so have your id ready!)
Also, a reminder that as of December 31st 2012 Oakville Transit isn't selling adult tickets anymore. Adult tickets that have already been purchased will be valid until March 31st 2013. As of April 1st 2013 adult tickets will not be honoured on Oakville transit buses, with the exception of Care-A-Van buses. As of April 1st 2013 you must switch to a presto card. You can purchase you presto card at the following locations (location provided by the City of Oakville Web site):
You can purchase a PRESTO card:
Online at prestocard.ca (it may take up to five business days to receive your new card in the mail)
Oakville Town Hall, 1225 Trafalgar Road
Oakville Transit office, 430 Wyecroft Road
River Oaks Community Centre, 2400 Sixth Line
Iroquois Ridge Library, 1051 Glenashton Drive
Glen Abbey Library, 1415 Third Line
Central Library, 120 Navy Street
Woodside Library, 1274 Rebecca Street
Oakville, Bronte and Clarkson GO Transit stations
Student and senior PRESTO cards are also available.
Don’t forget seniors won’t need a Presto Card on Monday’s because it’s Free Transit for seniors on Mondays!
FYI: How Presto works:
You load up your Presto card with an amount of money you select then when you ride Oakville transit, the trip fare is deducted from your card. There is a built-in loyalty program and Oakville Transit riders will get fare discounts based on the amount of rides taken and the value of the fares accumulated within the calendar month.
Hope this helped!
Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions!
I look forward to seeing all the seniors from Oakville riding for free on Mondays in 2013!
