What A Public Transit Pass Costs In Every Major Canadian City

Maybe we should all move to Regina.

I often hear Montrealers complaining about the price of our monthly OPUS card. Don't get me wrong; if you're not a student, those things are pricey. But if you quickly compare to the rest of Canada, it seems like we're pretty lucky. Especially considering that our transit system includes subway and bus.

The only other cities in Canada that have a subway system are Toronto and Vancouver. The rest of the major Canadian cities only have a public bus system, and the monthly passes are still expensive! I start to feel better about our $85/month bus pass when I see that a city like Ottawa - that only has a bus system - asks you to pay almost $120/month for a just a bus pass!

With that said, it looks like Toronto came out on top for the most expensive monthly pass at $146/month and Fredericton is the cheapest at only $80. Looks like Montreal is a close second!
