Free bus passes for arriving Ukrainians

Sarnia is making free bus passes available to Ukrainians escaping the Russian war, and any other refugees recently arrived in the community.

Coun. Brian White, who suggested the idea, said it’s one way the city can help welcome the Ukrainian families currently arriving in the city.

The newcomers, who are classified as temporary residents – not refugees – under Canada’s emergency travel program, can register for a free bus smart card at City Hall or Sarnia Transit.

Sarnia already provides free bus rides to veterans and children under 12, as well as discount programs for seniors and low-income residents.
