TTC fares are increasing today
This is not an April fools joke – TTC increased transit fares today.
A lot of TTC customers are not happy with the hike in price and some took to Twitter to express their frustrations.
I am salty about this TTC fare increase, just FYI.

Humber College students said the price hike is “annoying” and “inconvenient.”
“It’s a little annoying because I commute one way an hour and a half everyday. I basically spend three hours on a bus most days. I use the transit a lot, and now that the fares have increased means i’m going have to pay more which is very inconvenient for me now,” BRTV student Irina Teodorescu said.
“I don’t like it, but if they’re using that money to improve service then it’s okay,” Electronics student Owen Do said.
Anyone that uses the weekly passes will now to purchase monthly passes or single fares, TTC is also looking into a weekly maximum for Presto card users.
