TTC limits token sales to 5 per customer
The Toronto Transit Commission is experiencing a large demand for tokens. As a result, effective immediately, the TTC will limit the number of token sales to 5 per customer, down from 10 that was announced on Friday, at all collector booths and one per customer at Token Vending Machines at its automatic entrances, only, where there is no collector on duty. If a collector runs out of tokens, the fare charged will be $2.75.
On November 4, TTC staff recommended a fare increase for 2010 that will see adult fares rise by 25 cents, students/seniors fares by 15 cents, and children’s fares by 5 cents. If the proposed fare increase is approved, the TTC will realize an additional $62 million in revenue in 2010. Service levels for 2010 will be preserved and maintained at 2009 levels.
