Region of Peel offers reduced public transit fares to low-income residents.

The Peel region is implementing a permanent Affordable Transportation Program, which had been operating temporarily in partnership with the City of Mississauga as a pilot project in that municipality.

The income threshold for subsidy eligibility would be $22,000 for an individual and $31,000 for a couple, and the region will also look at children under 12 years old riding for free

The program will also be extended to serve residents in Brampton.Mississauga’s pilot offered eligible transit users a 50% subsidy on monthly transit passes.

Plans are to implement the program in Mississauga on Jan. 1 and consult with Brampton officials to determine an implementation schedule for that city.
