Flex Pass

Hello Trail Trekkers!

If you don’t have a rec centre pass and have been paying by cash — another option which is now available is purchasing a 10 card flex pass through the Rec Centre. This way, you do not have to worry about bringing the right change with you. The way the flex pass works is to show us your card — we will write down your name and card number and the Rec Centre will deduct the amount from your card. We are told you should also contact the rec centre and let them know you used one of your flex card passes for the hike. Hope this makes sense, if not, we can clarify this information with you on Friday when we see you!
