Increases to integrated transit pass, ticket booklet and local rate fares

Effective Sept. 1, 2016, the cost of several City of Spruce Grove transit fare products that can be used on ETS Route 560 will be changing.

The commuter cash fare and commuter pass, as well as the student pass, will remain unchanged. The integrated transit pass, which is available to Spruce Grove residents only, is increasing by $3 a month to $168. This increase is due to an increase in the ETS component of the pass. A booklet of 10 tickets is also increasing to $50 from $48.

The local rate within Spruce Grove for all riders ages six and up will be $2.50. Riders under the age of six and CNIB pass holders will continue to ride for free.
