Here’s something else to budget for, as you battle inflation: Timmins Transit bus fares are going up by 25 cents on January 1st. The city says the cost of a monthly pass will also increase “nominally”, for all categories except students and kids.
Public works and environmental services director Ken Krcel (kur-SELL) says the alternative would be a bigger hike at a later time.
In 2021, fares only covered about one-fifth of operational costs. The municipal tax base covers 68%.
