One city, one transit card by 2007

The Ontario government is planning to bring in a single pass system for public transit in the entire Greater Toronto Area. This farecard will be in use from Clarington/Oshawa in the east, to Hamilton in the west and York Region in the north.

The card, announced by Transportation Minister Harinder Takhar, will likely be available in early 2007.

Takhar says riders won’t have to search for exact change, buy tickets or carry different passes to travel on the different transit systems.

Brampton, Burlington, Hamilton, Mississauga, Oakville, Toronto and York Region have all signed on to develop the integrated-fare system.

The plan is expected to be fully in place from Hamilton to Whitby by 2010.

“Creating a transit culture in this province means using the latest technology to improve transit service,” Takhar said.

“The possibilities for this card are endless. In Hong Kong, for example, transit-fare cards can also be used at parking facilities, fast food outlets and vending machines.”
