There is no cost to obtain the initial bus card for new grade 9 students; however, there is a $3 fee for a replacement card and a $3 charge for grade 10-12 students. (Note that children age 14 and under, in kindergarten to grade 8, can also travel free of charge on Kingston transit and do not require a bus pass.)

More About the ActivPass

The ActivPass, spearheaded by Kingston Gets Active, aims to get students active by reducing transportation and financial barriers. The idea behind this free program is to provide children and youth with easy and accessible active opportunities so they can be active on a regular basis. Instead of sitting in front of the screens, kids have a healthier option to get them moving. Many thanks to our partners for helping to make this initiative possible. Get out and use your ActivPass today!
