Arc Card

When you use your Arc card to tap on and off the bus you will be charged the Arc card fare. The fare payment remains valid for 90 minutes, including transfers between Spruce Grove Transit buses (including the Stony Plain Transit buses). For example, you can travel on an on-demand local bus and then transfer to Route 560 to travel to Edmonton and your total fare will be $5.60 when you tap on and tap off your Arc card on both buses.

Once the total amount you've spent during the month reaches the fare cap, you ride for the rest of the month for free!
