Calgary Transit fares changing for 2022

Chinook Station

Starting in January 2022, Calgary Transit fares are changing.

In November, City Council voted in favour of increasing Calgary Transit’s fares to ensure that revenues keep pace with operating costs and city growth. Effective Jan. 1, 2022, most customers will pay about 10 cents more per ride.

We understand the need to keep transit services affordable, which is why there were no fare increases in 2020 during the first year of the pandemic. However, fare changes are necessary to cover our increasing costs and to keep our Customer Commitment to provide safe, reliable, helpful, informative, easy to use and clean service. We are investing to keep pace with our growing population and service demand.

Fares, advertising and parking revenues cover about 50 per cent of our operating costs while property taxes cover the remaining portion. The City of Calgary is committed to keeping taxes and transit fares as low as possible while still providing this important service.
