For children and seniors, the price for a concession fare has now increased by 5 cents on one-zone and two-zone, and 10 cents on three-zone using stored value on the Compass Card.

While some may be disappointed by the fare increase, the rates are increasing by less than what TransLink had initially planned for, which was a 4.6% hike. Instead, the new fares amount to a 2.3% increase.

The fare increase coincides with the mandatory mask policy ending on TransLink vehicles, which is going back to just a recommendation.
