DRT raises fares on July 1

Durham Region Transit will increase fares on Sunday, July 1. The new fare structure offers passengers a larger discount when they purchase multi-ride tickets or monthly passes instead paying with cash fares.

Details of the new fares.

From July 1 until July 31, you may “top up” old tickets with cash on any DRT bus. Adult ticket holders may “top up” for 15 cents, students “top up” for 10 cents and seniors and children for 20 cents. GO Transit bus drivers will not accept “top-ups”.

You can exchange old tickets for new ones from July 1 until October 31 at several locations in Durham Region:

DRT Headquarters, main floor reception, 605 Rossland Road East, Whitby, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

DRT East, 710 Raleigh Avenue, Oshawa, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

DRT West, 110 Westney Road South, Ajax, Monday to Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

United Way Star Assist Information Kiosk, Oshawa Centre, Oshawa, Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To exchange old tickets, you must purchase a full 10-ride card or 10-ride ticket and pay the ‘top up’ on each remaining unused ride.
