Problem with your smart card? 


Problem with your smart card?

What do I do if my card is defective?
You must go to an information centre.
If the problem with the card falls under the responsibility of the RTC, you will obtain a new OPUS card for free. The additional fares you pay will be reimbursed when you present a transfer proving that you paid a fare in cash.

Why do I have to pay my fare if my OPUS card is defective?
In the interest of fairness to everyone. When a card is defective, the scanner will not confirm whether or not it is loaded with a valid pass. Drivers have to make sure that all passengers pay their fare.
 

How can I protect my OPUS card from wear or damage?
Card holders are sold for $2,50 at RTC information centers and service counters.
