Commuters who regularly use Brampton Transit to make their way around the city should note that some fare increases will come into effect on May 1.

Today (April 17), the City of Brampton reminded residents that Brampton Transit and PRESTO fares will be changing next month following council’s approval of proposed fare increases for adults, youth and non-resident seniors. The changes follow three years of fare freezes.

The universal cash fare flat rate will be going up from $4.00 to $4.50, while Presto e-Purse trips will go up to $3.40 from $3.10. Weekly Presto passes for adults are going up to $37.50, while monthly passes will climb from $128.00 to $141.25 per month.

The approximate 10 per cent increase will result in the following fee changes:

The City says the increase will not apply to fares for children under 12 or seniors who are Brampton residents.
