Discount transit passes expanded

Along with offering restricted monthly passes to eligible students for $43 a month, a savings of $22, a partnership between Durham District School Board and Durham Region Transit is allowing the pass to be upgraded to unrestricted for $13 more. The restricted student pass provides access Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Oshawa Transit already designed a pass for the Catholic School Board at a discount. Now we have a discount on the discount for all restricted passes and anyone can buy them for $43. We have a new access pass for those on Social assistance and the disabled and all their family for $35. We pay a premium to GO Transit for everyone using the DRT pass on their system and Go Transit is raking in the money along the King Street corridor. I for one see very few adult passes anymore, so its not hard to guess why we have a big deficit. Those that use the system should pay for it and its still a bargain compared to buying a car. Perhaps one should ask why Roger Anderson is allowed to sit on the DRT Board and the GO Transit Board. When is someone going to wake up and stop these Rodeo clowns from destroying the system before they run it right into the ground. The public needs to step in before the next tax bill hits the mailbox
