Ottawa council hoping transit fare freeze will help ridership bounce back

By Cindy Tran, Canadian Press, City News

Ottawa city council has voted to freeze transit fares for the upcoming year in an effort to restore the public's trust after the light rail transit system debacle, and to encourage more people to use public transit as they return to in-person work. 

The city's mayor said on Wednesday, Dec. 14 that he is also hoping that keeping adult and youth fares at $3.75 will help with affordability. The freeze will apply to all transit users across the board, instead of being targeted toward specific groups.
