Ride Your Bike: TTC hikes fares, again

You should consider winter biking – it’s fun, pretty easy, and warm if you dress properly for it.  Don’t give the TTC more of your money for the “service” they provide.  Check the “Weather” section of our How-To Page to learn more!

It will cost Metropass users $60 a year, or $5 a month, more to ride the TTC next year.

The Toronto Transit Commission has approved a base five-cent increase to the cost of a token, bringing it to $2.70. In addition the cost of an adult Metropass is being boosted by one trip — from 48.5 tokens to 49.5.

The Metropass increase to $133.75 a month — with commensurate adjustments to the student and senior passes — was chosen over the option of increasing the $3 cash fare by 25 cents. Instead, the cash fare will rise by only a nickel, to $3.05.
