I am thrilled that Council has approved the Seniors’ $1 Off-Peak Bus Fare as a permanent program, along with the Affordable Transportation Program.

I proposed the Seniors’ $1 Fare as a pilot in 2015, in response to high demand from seniors in Ward 5. I’ve heard first-hand how this benefit helps seniors get out of their houses and connect with their community, medical treatment and families. Please continue to spread the word about this program to seniors who will benefit!
