TransLink's Transit Fare Review - Phase 2
In Phase One, more than 28,000 people gave feedback about the current fare system and what they want to see in the future.

Now in Phase Two, TransLink would like to know which options you prefer under the three core components of the fare structure, including:

  • distance travelled
  • time of travel
  • service type

Complete the Transit Fare Review survey before February 17, 2017.
