As the service develops, the Municipality looks forward to addressing your frequently asked questions. As new questions come up we will add to the list below. 

Who is paying for transit in Jasper?

As of now the parties below have made the made the following financial commitments toward Jasper Transit:

• Parks Canada - $45,000 (to the end of 2023 & is seeking funding beyond)
• Grande Yellowhead Public School Division - $115,000*
• École Desrochers - $27,000*

*school contributions are annual and final number to be confirmed each fall following final student registration numbers*

The balance of required annual funding is expected to come from the following sources:

• General Ticket Sales 
• Bulk Pass Sales
• Other External Contributions 
• Advertising Sales
• Municipal Funding

Administration is forecasting $418,500 in total external revenue for 2024 against a total operational expense of $662,870. The difference between revenue and expense ($244,370) represents the required municipal contribution to support the service.

During the 2024 budget process administration will present Council with the full municipal budget, including Transit. At that time administration will present Council with alternatives to address the required municipal contribution. These alternatives could include use of municipal tax dollars; the Public Transportation & Parking Reserve (which is partially funded through visitor paid parking revenues) or some mix of the two.   

Is the bus wheelchair accessible?

Not at this time. The municipality expects accessible units to arrive in early 2024. 

Can I bring my bike on the bus? 

 Not at this time. The municipality expects units with bike racks to arrive in early 2024. 

Can I bring golf clubs, hockey equipment, etc. on the bus?

Large items like golf clubs, hockey equipment, downhill skis and and snowboards are not permitted on the bus at this time. 

Can I bring my pet on the bus?

 Certified assistance animals are allowed on board at no charge. Owners of assistance animals should be prepared to show the animal's verification of training. An example of acceptable verification, similar out of province verification will also be accepted.


Passenger pets are allowed on board at no charge. All pets must be crated in a secure and clean carrier designed and intended for the carrying of animals which is small enough to fit on the owner's lap. Passengers must hold onto the carrier at all times and are responsible for the safety of their pet. (If there is room on the bus, carriers may be placed beside you on the floor, but the carrier should not block the aisle or restrict passenger movement.)

The pet must remain inside the carrier at all times.
