Transit subsidy now available for Chestermere residents
To enhance economical transportation options for residents, discounted passes and tickets will now be offered through the Chestermere Community Support Services’ Community Access Program to use Calgary Transit.
As Chestermere passengers are not able to utilize the City of Calgary’s subsidized transit rates, the City of Chestermere can now offer a subsidy program for any residents facing social and affordability barriers. This allows Chestermere to align subsidized fares with Calgary’s offering and remove barriers to transit ridership, including the new Chestermere Transit Link launched this summer.
Chestermere residents who are interested in applying for the transit subsidy can fill out the Community Support Services general intake form at chestermere.ca/intake or call (403) 207-7079 for assistance.
Requests to access the transit subsidy program will be evaluated based on income as well as individual needs and circumstances. Community members are asked to reach out via the website form or by phone before coming to City Hall to arrange purchase of subsidized tickets or passes.
