Low Income Transit Pass Proposed for Edmonton

bus

The Edmonton Transit Service Advisory Board’s proposal for a Low Income Transit Pass in Edmonton is moving ahead. Our citizen advisory board continues to support a pass that’s accessible and fair to those most in need of it. Your support, and that of the members of the Edmonton Commission on Housing and Homelessness (through so many letters, and speaking to the item at Transportation Committee) was a key driver of TC asking administration to bring back options to implement the plan.
That ‘implementation’ report has been completed, and will be presented to Transportation Committee this Wednesday. You are invited to read the public report, and remind you of your right to speak to this item. You can do both here: http://www.edmonton.ca/city_government/city_organization/transportation-committee-agendas.aspx.
