I think they were just called bus card and it was HORRIBLE if you lost it or happened to forget you had the last punch punched. My Mom used to get them at the drug stores on Irving Street. I remember trying to be sly and holding my finger over a previously punched number but the bus drivers were pretty wise to that. I think they cost like 50 cents and each punch was worth a nickel. The days when I lost the card or had too many punches I can remember walking from St Annes to my house on 28th. I was only 14 blocks but it seemed like forever, Thankfully I was more careful in high school because from 28th Ave to Presentation High School would have taken half the day to get there.
