All Aboard- Fares and Passes
Cash, tickets, tokens or passes can be used to board the TTC. There are no zoned fares; the TTC operates on a flat-rate system where customers can ride an unlimited distance for one fee. Fares are discounted for seniors, students and children.
Purchasing tickets and tokens in bundles provides riders a cost savings, and for very frequent TTC customers purchasing a pass may be a good option. The TTC offers the following types of passes, which apply to all the regular TTC routes except for the downtown express services or routes that travel outside of Toronto:
