Will offer free service, extended hours on New Year's Eve

Effective Jan. 1, Greater Sudbury Transit fares will increase 10 cents to $2.90 for adults and five cents to $2.15 for children age five plus, older adults age 55 plus and those who qualify for discounted “special” fares through receipt of disability pensions or support programs. Children age four and under ride free of charge.

“The fare increase will help maintain customer service, facilities and equipment, while matching rising operating costs and continued improvements to the public transit system,” the city said in a news release.

The price of five ride cards will be $11.25 for adults and students and $8.50 for children, older adults and special discount fares. Ten Ride Cards will be $22.50 for adults/students and $17.00 for children, older adults and special fares, an increase of between 10 and 15 cents per ride.

A 31-day pass will increase to $80 for adults, $74 for students and $48 for children, older adults and special fares, up $2 for adults/students and $1 for children, older adults and special fares.

Greater Sudbury Transit is again doing its part to keep our roads safe this holiday season with extended hours and free bus service between 10:30 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. on New Year’s Eve. TransCab service will be extended to coincide with the New Year’s Eve Transit schedule.
