Event Transit Fares Program

Event organizers who are interested in having transit fees waived for ticket holders may now purchase bulk transit fares for a minimum of 100 attendees at a rate of $1.00 per event ticket,  for event attendees to travel to and from the event. Attendees can then use their event ticket or pass to travel on conventional bus, ferry, and Access-A-Bus.  

This program could apply to a diverse range of events, including, but not limited to:

  • Sports events
  • Marathons
  • Cultural events
  • Religious events
  • Ceremonies
  • Festivals
  • Large conferences and business meetings
  • Trade shows and exhibitions

The ability to provide bulk transit fares for events provides an exciting new opportunity to promote transit ridership and supports the reduction of traffic in the downtown core.
