DRT passes, tickets, cash fares valid on Specialized Services,
starting December 1

Durham Region Transit has extended its fare structure to let DRT Specialized Services (accessible) passengers take advantage of discounted fare options. The new fare structure comes into effect tomorrow, Saturday, December 1.

All DRT monthly passes, tickets and cash fares, in all fare categories (adult, student, senior, child and ACCESS) are valid on Specialized Services for registered Specialized Services passengers. You no longer require the Specialized Services Monthly Pass and DRT fare vendors will not be selling the passes, starting tomorrow.

By extending its fare structure to apply to both regular and specialized service, Durham Region Transit is complying with Ontario Regulation 191/11 under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). The regulation states:

> “Where conventional and specialized services are provided in the same jurisdiction, transportation providers are to ensure there is fare parity by January 1, 2013.

DRT is now providing “fare parity” for all transit services it offers, including Specialized Services and contracted taxi services. DRT’s Transit Executive Committee approved the new fare structure during its meeting of Wednesday, February 1.
