Who's Responsible for What?

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 33% on TTC adult fare single rides and 21% on TTC adult monthly passes.

To apply for the discount City of Toronto residents must be 20-64 years old; receiving assistance through Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), Ontario Works (OW), Toronto Child Care Fee Subsidy, or Rent-Geared-to-Income Subsidy; and, have a PRESTO card. To be financially eligible for the discount, the applicant's family income must meet the program's definition of low-income.
