What can you do with "old" TTC tickets?



2013_SrStudent_Ticke.jpg2013_Day_Pass.jpgThe TTC raised its fares starting New Year’s Day, Wednesday, January 1.

However, that doesn’t mean that seniors and students don’t have throw away their 2013 tickets or day passes.

Until Friday, February 28, you can still use your “old” tickets when to pay your fare on the TTC, if you pay an extra five cents with the ticket. You won’t have to pay extra to use a 2013 day pass.

After February 28, you can’t use 2013 tickets to pay your fare when you board streetcars or buses or enter rapid transit stations — and you can’t use an “old” day pass either — but you can get a refund.

  • The TTC will refund to you $1.80 for every 2013 senior / student ticket you have.
  • It will refund $10.75 for each “old” day pass — those marked with “Version A13” on the back of the pass.
  • However, it will only refund as much as $200 during one transaction.

Here’s how you can get a refund:

In person

  • From Thursday, January 2 until Wednesday, December 31, Mondays to Fridays from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the TTC Metropass Discount Plan Office, 1900 Yonge Street (above Davisville Station).
  • the office is open longer hours — from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. — Thursdays and the first and last business day of each month.
  • the office is closed statutory holidays.

In person

  • From Thursday, January 2 until Friday, February 28, Mondays to Fridays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. at Bloor - Yonge Station, south-side entrance (except Family Day, Monday, February 17).

In person

  • From Monday, February 3 until Friday, February 28 at Kipling and Warden Stations Mondays to Fridays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. (except Family Day, Monday, February 17).

By mail

  • Starting Thursday, January 2, mail old tickets and passes — along with information about where the TTC should send your refund — to:

TTC Accounts Payable
1900 Yonge Street,
Toronto ON
M4S 1Z2

  • Allow six to eight weeks for refund.

You can’t use 2012 tickets to pay fares on the TTC — and the TTC will not refund the cost of them.


The TTC has redesigned 2014 senior / student and child tickets.
