Hey there, time traveller!

Winnipeg Transit is raising the rates for most tickets a nickel again.
As of Jan. 1, it’ll cost adults $2.40 to hop on a bus, up from $2.35. Seniors and students will pay $1.90, up from $1.85, the city announced today. Reduced-fare tickets, passes and Handi-Transit tickets are also going up.
The city describes the fare hikes as inflationary increases. They are approved by the chief financial officer and do not require council approval.
In 2008, council granted the CFO the authority to increase a variety of city fees by inflationary rates.
