Future Transit Question of the Month: TTC Day Passes and Presto

#CodeRedTO takes your questions and finds answers! This month: Will TTC Day passes (or Presto Day Passes) still be available after Presto is fully implemented on TTC routes?

We spoke to both the TTC and Metrolinx, and here’s their response:

The availability of a TTC Day Pass is one of the TTC Business Requirements that has been submitted, and accepted, by PRESTO. However, at this time it is under review how the PRESTO system will be able to implement the “group function” of the current TTC day pass. For example, each individual in the “group” may be required to have an individual PRESTO day pass to travel and transfer on the TTC. These sorts of details will be worked out as we move forward with PRESTO through detailed design.

LEARN about Transit and why there's room for subways, light rail, and streetcars in our region, and how light rail is actually a great city-building choice for the lower-density neighbourhoods in Etobicoke, Scarborough, North York, Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton, and Kitchener-Waterloo.

CALL your City Councillor, and tell them that you want rational, affordable, and rapid transit in Toronto to benefit everyone, not just one small section of the city. Rapid transit to Malvern, Morningside, Jane & Finch are achievable if we learn from successful transit networks around the world.

TELL your friends and family that subways are amazing - they really are! - but with limited funding we have to make rational decisions about whether to support more residents or leave people waiting for crowded buses for decades longer.

Did you know: The bus routes on Finch have over 85% of the ridership of the (much shorter) Sheppard Subway, and the bus routes on Eglinton already have over 140%! The lengths differ but the need is common in many areas of the city. We are decades behind and need better transit options for our residents now, not just small extensions that use up all the budget.
