Proof of age

Child Proof-of-Age Card

The TTC Child Proof-of-Age Card is available for children who are tall for their age. The card lets TTC drivers and collectors verify that the child is 12 or younger and eligible to ride for free. Every September, we send a quantity of these cards to every elementary and secondary school in Toronto that has 11 and 12 year olds.

To obtain one of these Proof-of-Age Cards at your school, please ask your school administration. In addition to their availability at schools, you can get a Child Proof-of-Age Card by calling TTC Customer Service at (416) 393-3030.


Youths ages 13 to 15 are not required to carry identification when travelling on the TTC.

For the 2021-2022 school year, youths ages 16 to 19 will be required to carry the following forms of photo identification as proof of age when travelling on the TTC:

• High school photo identification for the 2020-2021, if applicable, or 2019-2020 school year
• Driver’s License or Ontario Photo Card

This temporary change is being made as a result of COVID-19 and the fact that some schools may not be allowing photographers in the school to take pictures of the students.


If you are a senior 65 years of age or over, you will need to carry appropriate identification and present it to TTC staff upon request. You can use a government-issued photo ID, such as a Driver's License or the Ontario Photo Card.

Monthly Pass Details

The TTC Monthly Pass is transferable; however, the pass can only be transferred after a person using it has exited the TTC transit system. No "Pass Back" allowed—penalty for misuse.

Seniors/Youth/Post-Secondary Students: Your Monthly Pass is valid only with the appropriate photo ID. You can lend your transferable Monthly Pass to another Senior, Youth or Post-Secondary Student when you are not travelling with it.

Post-Secondary students: Post-Secondary Photo ID is not eligible for use with the Senior/Youth Ticket or Senior/Youth cash fare.

Fair Pass Transit Discount Program clients: When you load an adult TTC Monthly Pass onto your PRESTO card and it has a Fair Pass discount applied, the cost of the pass will be reduced by 21%. The discounted PRESTO card is not transferable and is intended for the approved Fair Pass client only. Photo ID is not required.
