TTC Metropasses


 TTC will Discontinue the VIP Program in Late 2017

Please be advised that the Toronto Transit Commission expects to migrate the Metropass Volume Incentive Program (VIP) to the PRESTO Metropass Discount Plan in late 2017.

Current VIP customers may continue to purchase passes through VIP until that time.

The new PRESTO Metropass Discount Plan will be similar to the current TTC Metropass Discount Plan.  Once the transition to PRESTO occurs, companies will no longer be able to administer the program as customers will be able to sign up individually.  Participation in the PRESTO VIP plan requires customers to commit to purchasing the Metropass each month, for one year in order to receive an 8% discount.  Customers will receive the same access to the TTC system as they do today with any Metropass (unlimited travel for one month).

Once full details regarding the transition have been finalized, the TTC will advise us and we will communicate any information to customers that purchase through the VIP Program at York University. Additionally, TTC has posted limited information on their website: https://www.ttc.ca/Fares_and_passes/PRESTO/FAQ.jsp

TTC Fare Price Increase

On November 21, 2016 the Toronto Transit Commission (the "TTC") announced a fare price increase.  The price increase will apply to the Metropasses ordered under the agreement with York University.  Please note the price increase will be applied going forward beginning with the purchase of Febuary 2017 Metropasses.  York University will be selling the TTC Metropasses at a discounted rate of $130.25 (the regular rate will be $146.25).

Staff & Faculty Discounted TTC Metropasses

TTC monthly Metropasses are sold for $130.25 which is at a discounted rate of approximately 11% off the regular price of $146.25 per month.

Please note that interested staff/faculty must provide photo I.D.
