Low income bus passes will be available as of May 2020.
A new report at Winnipeg City Hall says people can apply for the pass as of April 1.
It will be available for adults aged 18 to 64 who are:
- part of a household with an income below the Stats Canada low income cut off;
- approved for the province’s EIA program; or
- newcomers who have been in the country less than a year who haven’t filed a tax return.
The discounted monthly rate will start at about $70 in 2020, then go to $60 in 2021 and $50 when fully implemented in 2022.
