The Transit Access Program helps to ensure all residents of Grande Prairie have access to public transit and can stay connected to their community.
It offers a 50% subsidy on the monthly Grande Prairie Transit SUPERPASS to qualifying applicants. The SUPERPASS is a re-loadable electronic smart card used to pay your bus fare.
To be eligible, applicants’ income must not exceed the Low-Income Cut-Off level determined by Statistics Canada +30%.
Applications to access the program can be completed year-round. Proof of address, household income, and documentation for dependent children are all required for the application.
