Stand up for Affordable Transit for Students2020-02-16T20:09:58+00:00

Please sign this petition to stand up for students and learn how you can advocate to Councillors when they vote on the 2020 budget!

At $122.45, a student Metropass in Toronto is already too expensive for young people struggling with high rents, tuition, and declining OSAP. That’s why we are urging City Council to reverse the TTC’s decision to raise the price of a monthly transit pass for students by $5.70 – higher than any other fare category. A fare increase that disproportionately affects one of Toronto’s most financially vulnerable groups is poor public policy, and plainly unjust. In comparison, a monthly student transit pass in Montreal is $52, while in Vancouver it costs $56. Toronto should be encouraging students to take public transit, not making it unaffordable just to attend classes.
