better funding.

  • Fares don’t cover the cost of every trip, so as ridership grows, the TTC’s costs grow
  • The TTC gets less financial help than any other major North American transit system – only 84¢ per customer from Toronto property taxpayers
  • Montreal gets $1.28 per customer from city and provincial governments
  • Chicago gets $2.64 per customer from local, state and federal governments
  • More help from provincial and federal governments will allow the TTC to meet Toronto’s growing transit needs

Your TTC is still the best
deal on wheels.
