October 27, 2022 – Government of PEI: The Province of Prince Edward Island is making additional investments in public transit to freeze the cost of transit fares. Since June 2022, the cost of a monthly transit pass has been: $20 for adults; $10 for seniors; and $10 for post-secondary students.
These rates will remain on all public transit routes in the province until March 31, 2023. All transit routes on Prince Edward Island are free for children and students k-12.
“Every Islander is impacted by increases in the cost of living, including unpredictable fuel prices,” says Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Cory Deagle.
“Reliable, accessible and affordable public transit Island-wide is helping reduce Islander’s dependence on personal use vehicles and helping relieve some of the financial pressure on families.
“As our ridership continues to grow, we are making investments to improve our public transit system and ensure public transit options are available to all Islanders.”
