Something as simple as getting around in Canada will cost more in many cities this year. In most cases, this comes in the form of public transit. Winnipeg Transit fares, for example, will rise by five cents to $2.50 for a single bus ride, while the cost of a monthly pass goes up by more than $5 to $82.80. Out west, riders of Vancouver's TransLink system will see single fares rise between 25 cents and 50 cents, while monthly passes will jump as much as $20. In the country's largest city, the Toronto Transit Commission will hike the price of a single token by five cents, and its monthly pass by $2.50 (the single $3 cash fare will go unchanged). Airports, too, will cost more for Canadian travellers. All fliers departing from Winnipeg's James Richardson International Airport will pay a $5 increase in departure tax beginning this year.
