TransLink’s annual fare increase in effect July 1

TRANSLINK is reminding customers that on July 1, fares will see increases ranging from 5 cents for a single-use ticket to $4.05 for a three-zone monthly pass.

All Metro Vancouver transit fares will increase by 2.3% to allow TransLink to keep up with inflation and maintain the current transit system as it works toward achieving long-term financial sustainability.

  • Single-use adult and concession fare increase will range from $0.05 to $0.20.
  • DayPass fare increase will range from $0.20 to $0.25.
  • Fares for 1, 2 and 3 Zone monthly pass fare increase will range from $2.25 to $4.05.

As always, customers can save more by using Compass Card Stored Value. Even with these increases, Metro Vancouver continues to have the lowest average multi-mode adult cash fares of all major Canadian cities, says TransLink.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, TransLink cancelled the 2020 annual fare change. The 2021 fare change is less than originally planned thanks to support from the BC Safe Restart Agreement. TransLink says it recognizes transit is an essential service for thousands of people in the region and should remain affordable as the local economy recovers.
