There’s every indication TTC fares will go up in the new year, but it’s too early to say by how much.
Members of the TTC budget committee met yesterday and recommended a freeze in the cost of the monthly metropass and earlier subway service on Sundays. TTC chair Josh Colle says the recommendations will affect the size of the gap to be bridged in the 2016 budget, and ultimately a decision on increases for the rest of the TTC fares.
Decisions by the TTC budget committee still need to be approved by the TTC board. And, the transit agency’s budget will then have to be approved by full Toronto city council in the first part of next year.
