• The TTC is a pay-as-you-enter, pay-as-you-board transit system, with seamless connections between buses, streetcars and the subway. Entry is by cash, token, ticket, valid pass or valid transfer. You can pay your fare and purchase tokens, tickets and passes at the Collector Booths at all Subway/RT stations.
  • Check the fare card posted at your point of payment for the most up-to-date fare information. Exact fare is required on buses and streetcars.
  • Tickets, tokens, passes, transfers or exact change is required on buses and streetcars. Fare media can be purchased at all subway station Collector Booths. TTC fares are also available at more than 1,100 authorized Fare Media Sellers in Toronto.
  • Transfers are free and must be obtained where you pay your fare. You can get a transfer from a TTC Operator, or from an automated transfer machine at any Subway/RT station, after paying your fare. Transfers are good for a one-way trip only; stopovers are not permitted.
  • TTC accessible buses serve all TTC routes in Toronto. You will recognize an accessible bus stop by the blue international wheelchair symbol on the bus stop pole. Reminder: not all stops along accessible routes are accessible.
  • You will recognize an accessible bus by the blue international wheelchair symbol displayed above the front right bumper next to the entrance door, and by the blue lights on either side of the route destination sign above the windshield.
  • When boarding and exiting a subway train, mind the gap in the floor between the platform edge and the subway car.
  • Never rush towards the doors of a subway car, especially when the door chimes are sounding and the orange light in the doorway is flashing, as this indicates that the doors are closing.
  • Proceed carefully if using stairs or escalators. Always hold the handrail securely.
  • Use elevators where available for wheeled devices (i.e. baby strollers).
  • Public telephones are located on all Subway/RT station platforms, at station entrances and in many bus and streetcar transfer areas. Calling 9-1-1 is always free from a public telephone.
  • You can plan your trip in advance using the TTC Internet Trip Planner.
