If you have an OPUS card from your school from last year and you are 19 or over on September 30, you must also go to an RTC information center or service counter to confirm that you are still a full-time student.
Be sure to take the following with you when you go to an RTC service counter or to your school’s services center:
- Photo ID
- Identification indicating your date of birth (e.g., passport, driver’s license)
- Proof of full-time student status

Reminder on using the OPUS photo ID card
You must present your OPUS photo ID card to the driver every time you board the bus.
Passes obtained at the Student Plus or 18 and under rates on OPUS cards are non-transferable. An OPUS photo ID card on which a reduced rate pass has been loaded cannot be used by anyone but the card owner.
As a precaution in the event your OPUS card is damaged, always carry enough money with you to pay your fare.
