OC Transpo fares to rise in city budget

By Ryan Tumilty, Ottawa Metro News, November 8, 2017

Transit users will likely pay more to get around Ottawa next year, as the city’s new draft budget confirmed across-the-board fare hikes.

The budget, which still has to be approved by council, hikes the cash fare for transit users to $3.50 from $3.40. Presto users will pay more as well, with the cost rising from $3.35 to $3.45. Adult monthly passes will rise to $116.50 from $113.75.

Transit commissioner and city Coun. Stephen Blais said the city committed to a regular, predictable hike and this just plays out in the budget.
