Mid-Pen Transit Service's New Online Portal has launched!

​The online transit portal will allow users to:

  • Create an online user account;
  • Register your SmartCard to your user account;
  • More than one SmartCard can be linked to a user account;
  • Reload your SmartCard online via credit card;
  • Activate an auto-reload feature where the system will automatically load your SmartCard when your balance falls below your set threshold;
  • Report a lost or stolen SmartCard to immediately deactivate the lost or stolen SmartCard and request a replacement; and
  • Review usage history.​

Access to the portal can be found here:​

COVID-19/Mask requirement:  Reminder, that transit riders are required to wear a non-medical mask when riding the bus, with exceptions given to certain individuals based on the Chief Medical Officer's instructions. Masks will be provided when boarding if you don't have one, and refusal to wear one will result in refusal of service and could result in fines ranging from $750-$1000 up to a maximum of $100,000.​

Penetanguishene Route Trial Changes

This modified route ​will commence as of January 1, 2021 on a trial
basis for the duration of the month. If there are no issues identified
during the trial period, the modifications will become permanent.

FLAG DOWN SERVICE: Numerous bus stops have been placed along our fixed routes to designate safe places to get on or off of a bus.

However, passengers seeking bus service are not required to be at a bus stop or shelter to get on or off of a bus. MPT allows passengers standing in a safe location to flag down bus along its route and get on the bus.
