Results are in for the random drug trials that the TTC announced it would be implementing in spring of 2017.
According to a report, a total of 82 employees were non-compliant or refused to test under the random program from May 8, 2017 to December 31, 2018.
During the same period, 4,299 employees (98.1%) tested under the random program were compliant.
The document states that of the test results that were positive for drugs, 20% were for cocaine and 7% were for opioids.
An additional 2% were amphetamines, 9% were alcohol, and 62% were cannabis.
This news comes out shortly after Metrolinx, another major source of public transit in the city, updated policies to ban some employees from using cannabis off-duty.
The next quarterly update will be provided in the May 2019 CEO’s Report.
