Lower bus pass fares coming to Regina in 2019
The city has approved lower fares for Regina Transit in 2019 in hopes of making bus passes more affordable to residents.
Starting January 14, residents will see the following changes:
- Adult 31-day pass will drop from $92 to $89
- Youth 31-day pass will drop from $66 to $64
- 20 Rides adult pass will drop from $58 to $55
- 20 Rides youth pass will drop from $49 to $46
- Senior annual pass will drop from $300 to $270
Cash fares will remain the same.
“Meeting the needs of our transit customers is a high priority for the City,” Mayor Michael Fougere in news release. “We have seen ridership greatly increase in recent years as we have expanded services and renewed our fleet of buses, and I am confident we will see that continue once these changes are in place.”
In addition to the price adjustments, a number of new passes will also be made available on January 14, including a 31-day senior pass, a semi-annual adult pass, a semi-annual youth pass, and an “affordable adult pass” and “affordable youth pass”.
