Kingston Transit has announced a reduced rate Affordable Pass program to support community members who need it most. As part of the City of Kingston’s Municipal Fee Assistance Program (MFAP), eligible individuals will pay 50 per cent less when purchasing their monthly transit passes.
Starting in April 2023, adults will pay $20 per month and youth/seniors will pay $14.88 per month. This reduction will also apply to registered clients of Kingston Access Bus (KAB).
According to Mayor Bryan Paterson, “High inflation and the rising cost of living have made it harder for households to make ends meet. Reducing the cost of public transit is one way the City is directly supporting those who need help the most.”
To determine if they qualify for the MFAP program and are eligible to receive a reduced-cost affordable monthly transit pass, individuals can visit CityofKingston.ca/Fee-Assistance.
There will be no price increase for other transit fares or passes this year. The rate reductions and freezes were approved by Council on Feb. 21, 2023, and will remain in effect until at least Dec. 31, 2023.
