Starting today, March 1st, 2015, the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) increases many of its fares.
As of today, the cost of tokens increases to $2.80, as does the PRESTO fare. The cost of the monthly Metropass increases to $141.50. The Metropass Discount Plan increases to $129.75, while the weekly pass increases to $40.75. The day pass increases to $11.50. Cash fares for adults remain $3.00
Senior and student fares are now $2.00 cash, while senior/student tickets are now available for $9.75 (five tickets), and $19.50 (10 tickets.) The senior/student monthly Metropass is now $112.00, while the senior/student Metropass Discount Plan increases to $102.75. The senior/student weekly pass is now $33.00.
The good news is that children 12 and under no longer have to pay a fare and can ride free.
According to PRESTO’s website, seniors can now use PRESTO for $1.85 a ride. This appears to be a new option that was not previously possible.
