Motion To: That the Transit Commission recommends that City Council approve the following motion: WHEREAS the fares that come into effect on July 1, 2013, provide for different prices when single-ride fares are paid by different means; and WHEREAS staff are currently preparing information for customers on the July 1, 2013, fares; and WHEREAS the Presto e-purse fare prices are not available to customers who travel on Para Transpo; and WHEREAS customers who travel on Para Transpo should have access to the same discounted single-ride fares as customers who travel on conventional OC Transpo services; and WHEREAS temporarily reducing the Para Transpo cash fares to be the same as the e-purse fares on conventional OC Transpo services would reduce fare revenue by approximately $150,000 in a full year ($75,000 for each six month period) between July 1, 2013, and June 30, 2014; and WHEREAS with the discontinuation of the penny in Canada, it is appropriate to set cash fares to the nearest five cents; THEREFORE BE IT RES
