Penticton Transit checks customer fares regularly. When your transit operator checks your fare, transfer or asks to look at your pass, it is part of their job. By paying attention to fare revenue, transit operators help minimise the local taxation required to support your transit system and keep fares lower for everyone.

If you have questions or comments about fare collection procedures, please cal Penticton Transit at 492-5602
