Metro Vancouver transit fares are rising by as much as 10 cents per trip on July 1.

The annual transit fare change, part of Phase One of the Mayors’ Council 10-Year Vision for Regional Transportation, will see single-use, one-zone adult fares increase 10 cents (including HandyDART) from $2.20 to $2.30 for Compass Card holders and $2.85 to $2.95 for cash fares.

Monthly pass fares will be increasing by $1 or $2, depending on zone type.

Single-use concession fares — available to HardyCard holders, seniors and children — will jump five cents for Compass Card fares and 10 cents for cash fares.

TransLink is hiking transit fares on July 1.

“Even with these increases, Metro Vancouver continues to have the lowest average fares of all major Canadian cities,” TransLink said in a release. “These modest, scheduled increases are helping to fund transit investments to increase capacity, reduce overcrowding and introduce bus service in new areas.”
