C-TRAN is proposing a temporary, 12-month fare reduction in 2022. The proposal is primarily focused on easing the burden of transportation for those who continue to rely on C-TRAN, and for those who may return to our system during the next year.

The proposal would lower the Local fare from $1.80 to $1 per ride for an adult. The Adult Express fare would drop from $3.85 to $2.50 per ride. Some Honored/Youth fares would also be discounted accordingly, and the C-VAN fare would drop from $1.80 to $1. All daily and monthly caps in the Hop Fastpass system would remain unchanged.
