It’s almost March, which means the latest TTC fare hike is just around the corner.
The TTC Board approved the fare hike last year, and will affect all PRESTO users.
“TTC fares will be increasing on March 1, 2020,” reads the TTC’s website. “The adult cash fare will remain the same at $3.25, while the cash fare for all other fare types will increase by $0.10. This also includes PRESTO pay-as-you-go payment. The cost of monthly passes will also be increased across all fare types.”
Those who want to cancel the 12 Month Pass or the Autorenew on the TTC Monthly Pass, you will need to do so before February 22.
The cost of a monthly Presto pass would also increase by $4.85 for an adult, bringing it to $156.
Post-secondary students face an even bigger jump. Their monthly metro passes would increase by $5.70 per month to $117.45.
Children 12 years and under ride for free.
The fare hikes would generate an extra $31.4 million in passenger revenues, according to TTC staff.
