Calgary Transit introduces new weekend group day pass

Beginning this weekend, Calgary Transit will be offering a new weekend group day pass for customers.

This new pass is targeted to groups and families traveling together, who don’t use transit regularly, but could benefit from discounted transit fares to attend events and activities on weekends. The price of the weekend group day pass is $15 and it is valid for unlimited travel on a weekend day for groups of up to five people including up to two adults.

“We know that for a lot of families or groups traveling together, the price to get around can really add up,” says Councillor Kourtney Penner. “This discounted fare will make it easier for them to choose transit to get where they’re going.”

The price of this pass offers savings versus the cost if the individuals were to buy single ride tickets or multiple day passes at the regular rates. And unlike a single ride ticket, the group pass is valid all day – until the end of service.

“There’s always so much happening in Calgary on weekends and this pass is a great opportunity for groups to save on regular transit costs, or on the cost and hassle of driving, parking and navigating through traffic,” Penner says.

After April 15, the weekend group day pass will be available every weekend on My Fare, the Transit trip planning app, or from ticket vending machines at CTrain stations.
