The TTC has ended its Metropass Discount Plan (MDP) program earlier than anticipated due to the ongoing uncertainty of the Canada Post labour negotiations that could impact delivery of November or December Metropasses. The MDP program was scheduled to end in December as the TTC transitions to PRESTO.
MDP customers will not be charged for the November and December Metropasses and will instead receive a credit on November 1 and December 1 of $12.25 for adults or $9.75 for seniors/youths, the equivalent of the MDP discount on a Metropass. MDP customers will also receive a $6 credit on November 1 that can be used to purchase a PRESTO card.
The TTC encourages MDP customers to sign up for the 12 Month Pass on PRESTO. It costs the same ($134 for adults and $107 for seniors/youths), requires the same 12-month commitment and provides the same unlimited travel as the MDP pass. The monthly pass is automatically updated each month, removing the need to mail passes to customers. As well, if a PRESTO card is lost or stolen, it can be cancelled and replaced without the customer having to purchase a new monthly pass.
The 12 Month Pass is available for sale at prestocard.ca from the last eight days of the month through the first five days of the new month. Customers who don’t have access to a computer can get a registration form by calling PRESTO's Customer Service Centre at 1-877-378-6123. Forms are also available from the TTC's Metropass Discount Plan office at 1900 Yonge St. More information about the 12 Month Pass is available at ttc.ca.
MDP customers can still purchase a regular Metropass from a collector booth at all TTC subway stations or from an authorized fare media retailer. Passes cost $146.25 for adults and $116.25 for seniors/youths. The Metropass program ends on December 31, 2018.
Tickets and tokens will be available for purchase until Aug. 3, 2019.
