TORONTO – Toronto city council voted Thursday night to request Metrolinx to keep fares for the Union-Pearson express line affordable.

A motion asks the provincial transit agency to keep the ticket price comparable with GO Transit fares.

The cost per trip hasn’t officially been set but reports suggest it could range from $20 to $30.
