Last year there were talks about a more affordable OC Transpo pass for lower income residents. The talks were approved by the city and plans were put into the budget.
Now, these new passes will take effect April 1st, and if you’re eligible, you can start applying.
Originally $41.75 was asked for… but OC Transpo settled on a a different price. The EquiPass costs $57 per month. That’s half the $113.75 cost of a regular adult monthly pass.
You will have to follow a few steps to apply though…
You can find an application form on the OC Transpo website or in person at OC Transpo customer service centres. You will then have to mail your application in or bring it to an OC Transpo service centre, City of Ottawa client service centre, or community and social support centre.
If approved, hang on to your letter and bring it to any OC Transpo customer service centre for processing. And then you’re good to go to purchase your pass.
