Tess Kalinowski, Transportation Reporter with The Star:
The increase would bring the TTC about $24 million in revenue at a time when record ridership continues to grow with 483 million rides forecast this year.
Although cash fares would remain unchanged, token prices would increase 10 cents to $2.60 and a regular Metropass would cost $126, $5 more per month.
That the Metropass increase equals exactly $60 a year is, I think, some kind of demented joke. There’s no way they can be serious about this.
