Transit fares will increase on January 1

(CHVN) Transit fares will increase at the start of the new year, but unlike the typical five cent increase, full fares will be a jump of 25 cents. This is to accommodate the changing budget and the provincial cuts to transportation.

Full fare applies to individuals between 17-64 who are not in high school or a post-secondary institution. The youth fare applies to youth aged 6-16 or high school students 17-21 with a GoCard. Children 5 and under are free when accompanied by a fare-paying adult.

Senior fares apply to those aged 65 or older and post-secondary fares can only be purchased at participating post-secondary institutions.

The City of Winnipeg encourages riders to load all these fares on their reloadable peggo card. Tap to pay at the bus and manage all your products online. You can purchase different fare types, including a 24-hour e-pass, a 3-day e-pass or even a 21-day e-pass.
