The transit commission on Monday approved OC Transpo’s 2017 budget and an LRT-era fare table, but some customers still want a better discount for people with low incomes.

Transpo is proposing to launch a low-income pass in April after thousands of customers demanded a cheaper option for people who can’t afford a full pass. The monthly pass, called the EquiPass, would cost $57. The price is about half of what the full adult pass would cost.
