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

The Fair Pass discount is programmed onto a PRESTO card and cardholders must load funds to access the discounted Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) adult fare or TTC monthly pass.

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

TTC Fare Types Regular Adult Fare* Fair Pass User Savings
Single Ride $3.00 $2.00 $1.00
Monthly Pass $146.25 $115.50 30.75

*Based on PRESTO Card payment
