OC Transpo doesn't know why sales of adult passes aren't meeting expectations

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, September 19, 2018

Sales of adult monthly transit passes were below expectations in the first half of 2018 as OC Transpo girds for a projected $4.1-million revenue shortfall for the year, and that’s not even accounting for the LRT delay.

The transit commission on Wednesday learned that Transpo budgeted to sell 281,847 adult monthly passes between January and June, but it sold 268,986 passes.

On top of that, single-fare Presto e-purse transactions were about $2.5 million short of what Transpo thought it would make in those six months.
