Waterloo Region

You’ll have to pay an extra 15 cents to buy adult Grand River Transit bus tickets, starting July 1. Adult tickets will cost $1.95 each. The cash fare for adults, however, remains at $2.50.

Waterloo Region Council approved raising GRT fares at its meeting Tuesday, May 5.

Council expects to approve five-to-ten percent fare increases every year for the next several years as it asks Waterloo Region passengers to help pay for more bus services and rapid transit. Increasing fares by 15 cents raises about $900,000 for GRT services.

GRT is also increasing the cost of a monthly student pass from $44 to $46.
