Motion To: Whereas affordable transit is a fundamental pre-condition to the participation by all residents in the economic and social life of this city; and, Whereas the full-priced bus pass is a significant barrier to full participation by households that fall below the Low Income Cut-off (LICO) after tax; and, Whereas thousands of residents have voiced their support for a low-income bus pass; therefore; Be it resolved any future fare table developed for consideration by Council include options for low-income transit pass for residents falling below the LICO at some level of subsidy between 25-60%.
