TTC fare hike

What do you think of the TTC's 5 cent fare hike?

Earlier this afternoon the TTC made official what has long been expected - fares are going up. Tokens will now cost $2.65 and a monthly Metropass will now ring in at $128.50. Those paying out of pocket will be happy to now that cash fares will be held steady at an even $3. The price hikes, or course, are expected to help the TTC get control of its budget and bring in an additional $18 million in revenue in 2013 alone. The new fares take effect January 1st.
