Freeze on Transit/fees, investment in nonprofits approved

Post Date: Monday, December 14, 2015

Today, City Council passed Mayor Nenshi's proposal to use a one-time surplus to temporarily freeze transit, recreation, and other city service fees. The Community Economic Resiliency Fund also includes $5 million to support nonprofits hit hard by this current economic downturn. 

Council deferred committing an additional $14.4 million to affordable housing initiatives to the coming Priorities and Finance Committee Meeting where the allocation of funds could be discussed in more detail.

Here is an update from Calgary Transit about the reduced fares for 2016.
