For some, the transit fare increase didn't do much. But others have been significantly impacted by the price change. Starting January 1, 2018, the City of Winnipeg raised bus fares an additional $0.25, making a single ride almost $3.00. Shaun Wheeler says it's not affecting him too much, as he is the only one in his family who takes the bus. While he isn't a huge fan of the extra $3.00 a week he has to spend, he isn't too concerned.
