"Sure is cheap transportation."

Really? It's still based on the old, and imho, antiquated "zones". A year or two ago, they said they were going to revise how the fare structures were calculated -- see no sign of that yet!!

Yeah, zones are dumb but a 30 day seniors' unlimited travel pass for $54 is a lifetime deal.

Might be a good idea for poster 3 to read the qualifications for the senior yearly pass, before making the statement above.

Eligibility

To get a reduced-cost pass, you must be living in an area served by BC Transit or TransLink. You must also meet one of these criteria:

60-64 years old and someone in your family unit is a Person with Disabilities receiving disability assistance from the Province of British Columbia

60–64 years old and on income assistance from the Province of British Columbia

60–64 years old, living on a First Nations reserve and getting assistance from the band office

Over 65 years old and would qualify for the GIS but do not meet the Canadian 10-year residency rule

Getting Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS)

Getting the Federal Spousal Allowance

Getting the Allowance for the Survivor

Perhaps poster 4 should re-read post 3.

That $54 mentioned is for a monthly pass and nothing to do with "the senior yearly pass"
