Sherbrooke launches survey on public transit fares

The Société de transport de Sherbrooke (STS) has launched a survey to hear how users and residents feel about the pricing of the various paratransit and urban transit services available in the city.
The objective is to offer fares that correspond to the reality and needs of STS clientele.
In a press release Marc Denault, president of the STS explained that when it is well adapted to the needs and reality of users, fares become a lever to encourage the use of public transit. “Conversely, it can become a barrier to use when it is too complex,” he said.
According to the transport authority, fares should be structured in such a way as to adequately meet both the mobility needs of citizens and the financial means required by the STS to offer a high-quality service.
