Ottawa Now – Downtown councillor proposes a transit fare freeze for 2024


A Downtown city councillor wants OC Transpo fares to be frozen throughout 2024, an agreement that was also made for this year. In an effort to offset any potential damages, Shawn Menard is also proposing a one percent increase on the transit levy. City Council will be voting on the 2024 Transit Budget this Wednesday, on top of the entire 2024 Municipal Budget. Kristy Cameron goes 1-on-1 with the Capital Ward councillor.
