OC Transpo riders who've come to enjoy a small perk at tax time are in for some disappointment.

The federal Liberal government is scrapping the non-refundable public transit tax credit, first introduced by the Conservatives in 2006.

The credit allowed riders to claim up to 15 per cent of what they spent on transit passes. For an adult OC Transpo pass holder, the credit translated into a $200 saving come tax time.
