However, fares for seniors, users on the fair pass transit discount program, and monthly pass customers will remain the same.
“Revenue from this fare increase, in addition to the City of Toronto’s proposed subsidy to the TTC of $958.7 million, will help us ensure the system is reliable, safe and accessible for all Torontonians,” the TTC said.
Starting Monday, April 3, TTC fares are as follows:
- The new fares for adults paying cash are now $3.35, up from $3.25.
- Adults using PRESTO cards will now be paying $3.30, up from $3.20.
- For adults using PRESTO ticket, a one-ride ticket now costs $3.35, two-ride is $6.70 and a day pass at $13.50.
- Fares for youths aged 13 to 19 paying cash are now $2.40, up from $2.30.
- Youths using PRESTO cards will now be paying $2.35.
- Children aged 12 and younger continue to ride the TTC for free.
The changes in fares for the TTC come as the transit system has been the site of increased violence. Most recently, a 16-year-old was killed at Keele subway station.
