ttc fare hike

TTC Fare Hike Approved

The TTC fare hike was debated this afternoon at the much anticipated Toronto Transit Commission meeting, and a conclusion has been reached and voted on. We will indeed be seeing increases implemented on January 3rd, 2010.

Adult cash fare will rise to $3 (from $2.75), but the adult Metropass will not jump to $126 as previously recommended, instead settling at $121 (up from $109). Tokens will rise to $2.50 (up from $2.25), and weekly passes will rise to $36 (up from $32.25).

What's not entirely clear is how much loyal rider rage will increase (up from already too high). Or how much harder it will get to buy tokens before the hike (it's become a real pain).

Here are the full details on the approved fare hikes:

If there's one consolation prize, it's news that (effective in September of 2010) people who are taking a post-secondary degree (or other diploma granting program) will be eligible for student Metropass pricing.

Is the TTC approved fare hike fair?

Will the impending TTC fare hike change your use of the transit system in 2010?
