Saskatoon transit users will soon have to dig a little deeper in their pockets to ride the bus.

Starting next month on Feb. 1, single transit tickets will cost ten cents more for adults, students and children.

That means the new rates will be $2.40, $1.80 and $1.40 respectively.

The cost of monthly passes and cash fares are also on the rise.

The increases were approved in the 2014 city budget.
