Children 12 and under will ride the TTC for free but other fares will increase by 10 cents, under proposed changes presented Monday by Mayor John Tory.
The changes were part of a $95 million investment announced by Tory and TTC Chair Josh Colle.
There were several other proposals announced including:
“We need to get Toronto moving and investing in transit is an essential part of that," said Mayor Tory in a TTC statement. "The package we are announcing will not only make a difference in commute times and crowding on the transit system, it also provides financial relief for Toronto families."
The statement said the changes “will significantly expand and enhance transit service, reduce wait times and crowding, and make using the TTC more affordable for families by eliminating fares for children 12 years and under.”
