Greater Sudbury Transit Fare Increase Takes Effect January 1

Dec 27, 2018

Fares for Greater Sudbury Transit and Handi-Transit will increase three per cent on January 1, 2019, as approved under the Miscellaneous User Fee By-law.

The City of Greater Sudbury subsidizes approximately 60 per cent of the cost of operating a public transit service with assistance from federal and provincial gas tax funds. The remaining budget from fares helps to partially offset direct operating costs, such as fuel and maintenance.

Concession fares are available for passengers age 65 and over, recipients of a disability pension and children age five or older with a height of less than 1.52 metres. Concession cash fares are $2.50, a five-ride card is $10.50 and a 31-Day pass is $56. Children age four and under ride transit free of charge.

Adult and student cash fare is $3.40, a five-ride card is $13.50 and a 31-Day pass is $93 for adults and $84 for students.

Individual day passes will remain available in 2019, providing a day of unlimited travel for $10.50. Family passes provide a day of unlimited travel for up to five people including no more than two adults at a cost of $16.50. 

Greater Sudbury Transit operates a fleet of 59 accessible buses seven days a week, covering more than 4.2 million kilometres annually. Handi-Transit provides door-to-door transportation for persons with disabilities who are unable to use conventional transit services.
