What is an R-Card?

The R-Card is a reloadable smart card that can be loaded with pre-paid rides, cash equivalent or a 31 day pass.

There are four different R-Cards; Adult, Senior, Post-Secondary and Youth. Your first card will cost $5 and is reloadable to be used over and over again. At time of purchase, you can load the R-Card with rides or 31 day passes. Seniors can load their R-Cards with semi-annual or annual passes.

If you register your R-Card, it can be replaced if Transit is notified it has been lost, stolen or broken. It will be cancelled and the remaining balance on the R-Card can be transferred to a new R-Card. Simply fill out the R-Card Registration Form and email it to .


Where can I buy and load my R-card?

You first Senior and Discount cards are issued at the Transit Information Centre Downtown or the Transit Operations Centre. You can reloaded your pass by any agent with the exception of the University of Regina.

Your first Post-Secondary card is issued by the Transit Information Centre, the Transit Operations Centre or the University of Regina and can be reloaded by any agent.

Do I need to transfer?

If you board a second bus within an hour of paying for your original trip, the smart technology in the system will identify your next trip as a transfer. If you pay with coins, you will need to ask the operator for a paper transfer. When paying for more than one fare with the R-Card, the second person must request a paper transfer. You need to scan your transfer when boarding the second bus to complete your trip.
