Fair Pass Discount Program Launched

On April 4, the City of Toronto launched the first phase of the Fair Pass Discount Program. The program was approved by Toronto City Council in 2016 as a poverty reduction initiative to make transit more affordable for low income residents. Other initiatives include making transit free for children 12 years of age and under and implementing a universal two-hour transfer.

The Fair Pass Discount Program is available for Toronto residents receiving Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) and Ontario Works (OW) assistance who are not in receipt of any transportation supports equal to or greater than $100.

Eligible residents will receive a 12 month Fair Pass discount programmed onto a PRESTO card. Clients will save $1.00 on the TTC adult fare for a single ride and $30.75 on a TTC adult monthly pass.

To apply for the Fair Pass Discount Program, OW and ODSP clients must complete and sign an application and consent form. Forms are available online, by mail or at any OW or ODSP office. Completed forms can be submitted by mail, fax, or in-person at one of the Toronto Employment & Social Services locations (TESS).

Should you have any questions or concerns, please visit www.toronto.ca/transitdiscount. OW and ODSP clients may call 416-338-8888 (select option 3).
