Affordable Public Transit Campaign

Ottawa has some of the most expensive public transit fares in Canada. Thanks to the Healthy Transportation Coalition and many other organizations and thousands of individuals speaking out, we won the EquiPass, and a fare freeze for people living on lower incomes in Budget 2019.

However, the City plans to increase transit fares every year by 2.5%. And there are many needed improvements to the EquiPass program.

We must ensure that people living on low incomes can afford to ride the bus.

Take action today! E-mail your City Councillor and the Mayor and sign the petition. Urge elected officials to freeze the Access, Community, and EquiPasses in Budget 2020.
