Milton Transit raises fares, January 4

It’s going to cost you more to ride the bus in Milton, starting Monday, January 4.

That day, Milton Transit raises the price of cash fares, tickets and passes.

According to a Town of Milton news release,

“To help balance the cost of service operations and improvements, transit cash fares, tickets and day pass/monthly pass prices will be changing, effective January 4, 2016. Milton Transit fares are assessed as part of the annual user fee review process to determine if an increase is warranted. Even after changes, Milton Transit remains one of most affordable transit systems in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). Continued loyalty discounts on fare media tickets and passes provide further affordable options for frequent system users. Fare increases will apply to both conventional and Milton access+ (paratransit) services. January monthly passes are available for purchase at the new pass prices at all ticket agents.

“Funded by Halton Region and assessed annually, the Subsidized Passes for Low-Income Transit (SPLIT) program provides monthly transit passes at a reduced rate for Milton residents who meet the low income threshold. Individuals receiving assistance from Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program may also be eligible. Upon eligibility confirmation, residents can purchase Milton Transit monthly passes at a discounted rate. Milton residents must purchase SPLIT program passes at Town Hall at the Cashier counter. For more information about eligibility and how to apply, contact Halton Region by dialing 311.”
