Here's How Much The OC Transpo Costs Compared To Public Transit In These European Cities

The OC Transpo: You live it, you breathe it, you pay for it. But just how much? We looked around to see how much Ottawans pay for public transportation in comparison to other cities across Europe, from London to Moscow.

The findings? In some ways, we're luckier than others. In other ways, maybe not so much.

To get you started off, here's how much fares are in our own city are for an adult transfer (regular routes only):

-With cash: $3.65

-With Presto: $3.00

-With tickets: 2 ($1.65 each, so $3.30)

Here's a list of some European cities just to show you how far your Canadian dollar can go on their own public transit:

GoFundMe Set Up For 11-Year-Old Who Died In A Tragic Tobogganing Accident In Ottawa

The money will help her siblings get the support they need.

A local fundraiser has set out to honour the memory of a young girl who tragically died from a sledding accident in Ottawa last month.

The GoFundMe went up on January 6, 2022, in an effort to raise money for the family of Josée Abi Assal, an 11-year-old girl who lost her life in a tobogganing accident at Mooney's Bay — a popular, but unofficial sledding hill in Ottawa.
