The issue did not seem to affect those who loaded the cards at vending machines or in person.

Grand River Transit says customer’s cards should update the next time they are used at a farebox.

It says that after being tapped, the screen will say ‘card updated’ and a special tone will be heard.

There was also an issue with monthly passes as well which has been ironed out.
