Thank you to everyone who participated in Phase 2 of the Transit Fare Review.
Over 11,600 people responded to our survey!
ICYMI: From January 30 to February 17, we asked the public to tell us what they think about varying fares by distance, service type and time of travel.
Over the next few months, we’ll go through all of the online surveys and feedback and share in detail what we heard.
Stay tuned for the Phase 2 Summary Report in summer 2017!
We’ll use the feedback we received in Phase 2 to refine the long list of options into a short list for Phase 3.
We will be asking for your feedback on the narrowed down options for the new fare system in fall 2017. There will be lots of opportunities for you to get involved!

In 2016 TransLink began an in-depth look at our fare structure as we kicked off our Fare Policy Review.
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
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.
