Bus fares increase today
It now costs more to ride the bus in the Tournament Capital.
Starting today, April 1, a number of fare and service changes take effect in the Kamloops transit system.
Cash fares have increased to $2.25 for adults from $2, while students and seniors will pay $1.75 from $1.50.
Monthly passes, DayPASSES and ProPASSES have also increased.
To increase the flexibility and ease of use of transit service, a new 60-minute flexible transfer policy has also been implemented.
The new policy allows transit users to take more than one bus for a period of up to 60 minutes, including return trips.
Bus riders should request a transfer when paying fares and show their transfer face up to the driver when boarding connecting buses.
Another new policy is the Family Travel Program, which allows up to four children aged 12 and younger to ride free of charge when traveling with their parent or guardian who is 19 years or older.
The adult simply pays the fare using a monthly pass, ProPASS, U-PASS or BC Bus Pass.
In February, Kamloops city council approved the fare changes.
The last increase in Kamloops was in 2005.
