Today marked the new fare structure and route changes for BC Transit, as the region's transportation service introduced a two zone fare structure, reducing the number of zones to travel by one.

As of today, it costs an adult 2 dollars to travel one zone, while travelling to a second zone requires 2 dollars and 75 cents.

There were also some slight changes to tickets and passes, you can review those new fares here.

Children of ages four and under can ride the bus for free.

As well as the alignment of zones between Prince Rupert and Port Edward,  improved coverage for the North Coast Transition Society and Prince Rupert's Middle and Secondary school was introduced to the Transit service today.

Handy Dart riders also see improvements to the service in both communities, with an extra half hour of service added to the schedule. As of today handDART service will start at 8 AM and end at 4 PM Monday through Friday.
