OC Transpo is developing options for a new monthly pass that will appeal specifically to hybrid workers in an attempt to woo more riders back to public transit, general manager Renée Amilcar said.
During a meeting of the city's transit commission Thursday, Barrhaven West Coun. David Hill asked Amilcar whether a partial subscription pass would be made available to customers who only need to commute part-time now that federal workers are mandated to return to the office for a certain number of days per week.
"If we know for a fact that a number of these public servants are coming back two to three times a week in many cases, for them that decision metric to go to a monthly pass … doesn't exist, and as a result they are going to take the choice to take a car," Hill said.
