Students Get A ‘March Price Break’ On The Bus

WINDSOR, ONTARIO – Elementary, secondary, and post-secondary students are getting a price break again this year, thanks to Transit Windsor. During March Break (March 10– 16, 2013), students will pay a buck each way instead of the regular cash fare of $2.50. This applies to all city buses, but excludes the tunnel bus and special event services.

Students must show a valid student card, when paying their fare.

Transit Windsor continues to increase public awareness on the importance of transit. A single bus can eliminate up to 50 single occupancy vehicles. Transit keeps our cities moving at the lowest possible cost; otherwise, we would need to build more roads than taxpayers or the environment could support. Building public transit is vital to ‘smart growth’ strategies that help our cities reduce costs and undesirable impacts of urban sprawl. Educating our youth to these benefits will go a long way to meet these objectives.
