Fair Pass Transit Discount Program

The Fair Pass Transit Discount Program is a City of Toronto poverty reduction initiative to help make TTC and Wheel-Trans more affordable for low-income Toronto residents. The Fair Pass discount is programmed onto a PRESTO card and saves cardholders 36% on TTC single adult fare rides and 21% on TTC adult monthly passes.

To be eligible for the discount, you must:

  • live in the City of Toronto;
  • be 20-64 years old;
  • meet the program’s definition of low-income, and;
  • have a PRESTO card.
