In Phase One, many of you agreed that it’s time to take a fresh look at the way we price transit in Metro Vancouver.
We’ve taken your feedback and used it to generate possible options for three core components of the transit fare system:
1. Distance Travelled
2. Time of Travel
3. Service Type
Now, the second phase of the review is starting and we want to hear from you about these options!
How to get involved
- Read the discussion guide.
- Take the survey at translink.ca/farereview between January 30 and February 17, 2017
- Join the discussion on our new online forum.
As part of the second phase, we’ve launched a brand new discussion forum, moderated by our very own Fare Review experts!
The forum is a great place to share ideas, ask questions and learn more about potential fare options.
Don’t be discouraged if some discussions seem too technical – asking someone to explain is a helpful way to deepen everyone’s thinking.
If you’re a serious transit fan, on the other hand, you’ve found your playground!
Either way, let’s talk!
Based on the feedback you give us in Phase Two, we’ll narrow down to a short-list of options to bring back to you later this year in Phase Three.
At that point, we’ll also begin to map out the options for varying fares by product type and user type sot tht we can bring forward a complete package for review in Phase Four.
