Fare increase for TTC users

Toronto will spend an additional $53 million in its 2023 budget to "keep both passengers and TTC front-line workers safe" and plans to raise fares by 10 cents.

The investment was announced by Mayor John Tory at a press conference Wednesday morning.

The funds will be used, among other things, to hire 50 more TTC special agents and 10 additional Streets to Homes outreach workers, to prioritize TTC service on routes in communities identified as neighborhood improvement areas and areas in need of increased service, and to increase cleanliness. on streetcars on the city's busiest routes.

Transit fares for seniors and monthly pass users will remain frozen, while general fares will increase 10 cents.

Tory reported that the new fares represent a 3.1% increase, which it says is "well below inflation."

The city will also make 50,000 low-income residents eligible for the Fair Pass Transit Discount Program, which offers a 33% discount on single-ride fares and a 21% discount on monthly passes.

Fares will remain free for children under 12.

A more complete breakdown of how these funds will be used is expected on January 10.
