TransLink raising fares again

The legacy of a decade of TransLink and Liberal mismanagement continues…

TransLink also plans to increase monthly fare-card prices, with a one-zone card increasing from $73 to $81 and increase the price of a packet of one-zone tickets from $19 to $21 and another $2.50 for airport travellers using the RAV between Bridgeport and Templeton stations and YVR, starting on Jan. 1. FareSaver ticket books will cost $4 more, effective April 1, 2010. Cash fares or single-ticket prices would remain unchanged. West Coast Express and all other TransLink groups will be raising fares.
