OC Transpo’s proposal to jack up the price of the most popular monthly pass could come under heavy scrutiny at council.

Transpo wants to charge adult passholders $112.25 in 2017, which would be an increase of $6.50 from the price of the pass after the annual adjustment on July 1. The price, like all fares, would be subject to an average 1.5-per -cent increase in January, on top of changes to the base prices. Transpo wants to have all future fare increases to happen at the start of each year.
