Method of Payment

Before your trip

Payment may be made in advance by:

  • Credit card - contact the service provider by telephone
  • Pre-authorized debit - forward the pre-authorization form to the service provider

The customer service agent will issue the corresponding ticket by mail once the payment is processed.

At the time of your trip

Payment can be made with the driver by cash or cheque only. The driver will issue the corresponding ticket at the time of payment.

Cheques must be made payable to The BTS Network Inc. Non-sufficient funds will result in the riders being charged the non-sufficient funds cost plus a $20 administrative fee. If the rider fails to pay, eligibility will be suspended until the account is paid.

The customer service representative will tell the rider of the cost when booking their trip. Upon boarding, the driver will 'punch out' a trip if you are using a 10-ride ticket.

Partnership with D.A.R.T.S.

Niagara Region has partnered with D.A.R.T.S. to offer a Hamilton Transfer Hub. Located in Stoney Creek off Hwy. 8, this transfer hub will connect Niagara Specialized Transit riders with D.A.R.T.S., who will drive riders to their desired location in Hamilton. Niagara Specialized Transit riders can now book all types of trips to Hamilton, including work, social and medical-related trips.

The Niagara Specialized Transit fare to the Hamilton Transfer Hub is the same as all other Niagara Specialized Transit fares. However, an additional D.A.R.T.S. fare will apply.
