GO Transit users to get half-price fares on TTC
The provincial government plans to announce discount travel for riders transferring between the two services.
Toronto Star Excerpt
Oct. 3, 2017

Commuters who transfer between GO Transit and the TTC are about to get a $1.50 break on their fares, the Star has learned.

The provincial government has agreed to subsidize a co-fare agreement that will allow riders who use both agencies on a single trip to avoid paying two full-price fares.

Instead, adult passengers on GO Transit and the Union Pearson Express who transfer to the TTC will pay a half price TTC fare of $1.50.

Going the other way, riders switching from the TTC to GO Transit or the Union Pearson Express will be discounted $1.50 on their fares.

The discount will apply only to riders who pay using the Presto fare card.

A regular adult TTC ride using Presto costs $3. Fares on GO Transit and the Union Pearson Express vary depending on the distance travelled.

TTC predicting $44.5-million surplus in 2017
Lower than expected spending on labour, fuel, vehicle maintenance, and Presto fare card fees means the transit agency will have cash left over.
Toronto Star Excerpt
Oct. 16, 2017

The TTC is headed for a $44.5-million surplus this year.

Speaking to reporters after a meeting of the transit agency’s board on Monday, TTC CEO Andy Byford said the numbers, which are contained in his latest report to the board, have yet to be finalized. But he hailed the potential surplus as “testament to the efficient way that we run the TTC.”

“We have looked at every possible cost line to make sure that our (capital and operating budgets) are as thrifty as they can be while still getting done what we need to do,” he said.

The projected surplus is divided between the TTC’s conventional system, which is set to underspend by about $30.8 million, and the paratransit service Wheel-Trans, which is expected to have an extra $13.7 million.

Toronto-York Spadina subway extension lures crowds with station sneak peeks
TTC holds open house at three of the new stations on the long-awaited Toronto-York Spadina subway.
Toronto Star Excerpt
Oct. 29, 2017

Dazzling. Thrilling. Breathtaking.

You wouldn’t normally associate such adjectives with a TTC station. But that was actually the typical reaction Saturday when the public got a sneak peek at three new stations on the long-awaited Toronto-York Spadina subway extension, on track to open Dec. 17.

“It’s just so unique; it really stands out,” said Israel Mbevi, while outside the new Pioneer Village station on Steeles Ave. W. in the rain with his 12-year-old son Baraka.

“We came here from Mississauga on a rainy day just to see this. He loves anything to do with trains,” Mbevi said.

The trains aren’t in service yet, so shuttle buses ferried droves of curiosity seekers, transit buffs, train fanatics and long-suffering commuters from Sheppard West station, on the western side of the Yonge-University line, up to the Pioneer Village, Highway 407 and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre stations.

Officials said by the halfway point of the four-hour open house that more than 2,000 people had already visited the stations.

The six-stop, 8.6-kilometre extension has been in the works for over a decade and was beset by a two-year delay and cost overruns that ballooned to $3.2 billion from $2.63 billion.
