Thousands of low-income Calgarians are now riding the bus using a $5.05/month transit pass that opens doors to civic and community life. However, due to the overwhelming response to the sliding scale program, the City is projecting a $3 to $4 million funding shortfall. A city budget adjustment meeting on November 27th will review this program and explore ways to deal with the shortfall.

Together with Fair Calgary Community Voices, a local transportation advocacy group, we’re asking Calgarians to write their Councillors about the need to keep Calgary’s Sliding Scale Low-Income Transit Pass affordable and accessible.

Join us for letter writing, good snacks, and see advocacy in action.
Key messages, tips, and supplies with be provided.

Free Child Minding is available for this event, please sign women up.
