However, fares for seniors, users on the fair pass transit discount program, and monthly pass customers will remain the same.

“Revenue from this fare increase, in addition to the City of Toronto’s proposed subsidy to the TTC of $958.7 million, will help us ensure the system is reliable, safe and accessible for all Torontonians,” the TTC said.

Starting Monday, April 3, the fare hikes are as follows:
