Transit fees are on the rise in Fort Saskatchewan.
 
As of February 1, integrated monthly passes and Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) book of ten passes went up in price.
 
Adult integrated passes went up from $184.25 to $187.00 a month, student passes went from $121.00 to $123.50 and senior passes rose 50 cents to $50.50 a month.
 
"Edmonton Transit raised their fees which was part of their 2016 to 2018 operating budget," said Anthony Dionigi, transit supervisor with the City of Fort Saskatchewan. "They decided to raise their fees approximately three per cent annually for three years."
 
Fort Saskatchewan Transit (FTS) has three buses for the city plus other buses that travel into Edmonton.
 
"We have our own local passes and commuter passes," said Dionigi. "The passes for the bus to Edmonton the route 580 are governed by the City of Fort Saskatchewan. It's just the integrated pass because it includes all of Edmonton's transit systems so they take a portion of the revenue."
