Ontario announces fare discount
for passengers travelling by both GO and TTC



The government of Ontario says it’s lowering the cost of commuting for people in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area by introducing a 50-percent discount for PRESTO card users who transfer between GO Transit or the Union Pearson Express and the TTC.

Premier Kathleen Wynne, Ontario Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca and Mayor John Tory visited Union Station last week to announce that adult, senior and youth / student riders will pay a half-price TTC fare of just $1.50 when they use a PRESTO card to transfer from GO or UP Express. TTC passengers who transfer to GO or UPX will also enjoy lower fares - the PRESTO system will reduce the cost of their trips by $1.50.

This step will save passengers whose regular commute includes transferring between systems about $720 per year. The discount applies only to riders who pay using the Presto fare card.

According to the Toronto Star, in an article by reporters Robert Benzie and Ben Spurr, “Subsidizing the discount will cost the provincial treasury $18 million a year, and will affect 50,000 daily commuters who take the TTC and GO Transit or the UP Express.”

The Toronto Transit Commission is considering the agreement to implement these discounts during its meeting next week, while Toronto City Council may ratify it later this month. If Council approves the deal, the discounts would take effect early January.
