One way OC is losing at least $14 Million per year.

According to http://ottawa.ca/calendar/ottawa/citycouncil/tc/2012/01-26/01%20-%20Doc%201.pdf 

We have 53000 Upasses.

A Upass is the equivalent of a rural express pass that costs a Student $113.00 per month.

A Upass costs $180.00 for four (4) months.

53 000 u passes @ $180 term = $9 540 000
53 000 u passes @ $113 x 4 months (student rural express pass)  = $23 956 000
The City of Ottawa / Oc Transpo is losing $14 416 000 on the Upass deal.


...but it's revenue neutral or charity?

This this this.

Because there are tons of self-intitled youngins who would rather drive to the university then take the bus. Oc gains nothing from these people without the upass. What about those thousands of kids living on campus, who might leave once a week? Who walk to school.
