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?

LOL

You do realize that only about 48% of students bought any pass at all, before the upass, and the majority of those only bought discount regular term passes anyway...

Re-do your math and take a chill pill. Trust me, you're breaking even on this deal.
