Red Deer Transit announces changes to monthly adult pass

May 11, 2016 10:58 AM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

Transit users are advised that the rates for an adult monthly pass will increase starting with the June pass. The increase, from $67 to $70, was approved by Red Deer City Council during the 2016 Operating Budget deliberations. The increase will be applied to June adult passes at the time of purchase, which is often in May. 

Adult monthly passes are loaded onto the new MyRide cards, which are available for purchase at Transit Customer Service in Sorenson Station Transit Terminal downtown, and City Hall, and reloaded at sales outlets that previously sold Transit passes. Adult passes are transferable but can only be used by one person at a time and must remain in the possession of the passenger for their entire trip. 

The City of Red Deer increases Transit rates annually in response to inflation and expenses, typically in the fall. There will be additional rate changes in other categories coming to Transit users this September, including cash fares. More information on these changes will be shared with riders this summer.

The Transit Customer Service Centre at Sorensen Station offers MyRide card sales and reloads, transit information and a lost and found service.
