The cost of the previously free shuttle from downtown Revelstoke to Revelstoke Mountain Resort will be $2 one way.

The news came at the Nov. 8 city council meeting. Council approved a new contract between the city, who owns the bus, and the new operator.

Season passes will be available for the shuttle, as well as ticket books with discounts for buying bulk. The exact cost of the passes and ticket books will be hashed out in the next few days.

The tickets are expected to go on sale in about a week or so and will be available at retail locations in the city.

For more on the background to the decision, see this Revelstoke Times Review story from June 20.
