Edmonton transit riders will shell out a few more dollars for rides starting in February.
As part of city council's approved three-year budget cycle, Edmonton Transit fares will increase by an average of three per cent.
The adult 10-ride pass will increase by 75 cents, while the monthly pass will go up by $2.75, bringing it to $94.25.
Unexpired passes purchased before the increase will still be valid.
The $3.25 cash fare, the Assured Income for Severely Handicapped (AISH) monthly transit pass, and the U-Pass for eligible post-secondary students will not be increased.
The City of Calgary also increased transit prices on Jan. 1. In that city, a monthly transit pass will now cost $103.
Passes for Edmonton transit can be purchased online, at the ETS customer service office in City Hall and sales outlets throughout the city.
