Support Person CardA support person accompanying a person with a disability is not required to pay a fare when travelling on the TTC. Customers with disabilities who travel with a support person on the TTC must apply for a TTC Support Person Assistance Card to be eligible for this fare exemption. A support person is someone who assists the card holder with communication, mobility, personal care/medical needs or with access to goods, services or facilities.

Upon payment of fare by or for the card holder, the Support Person Assistance Card permits one (1) support person to travel with the card holder on the TTC on a single fare. Additional companions must pay a fare. A card holder may travel with different support persons at different times.

TTC Sherbourne Photo ID Centre – update

The TTC Photo ID Centre at Sherbourne Station is temporarily closed as we change our photo ID service provider. The facility will open in the first week of April (a firm date will be communicated once finalized).

Post-secondary students who require a TTC photo ID card can get one when the facility reopens. Until then, it is recommended post-secondary students without the ID card carry current school student card and/or proof of enrollment. TTC Fare inspectors are aware of this temporary arrangement.

Persons requiring a Support Person Assistance Card can drop off or mail their completed applications to TTC’s Customer Service Centre above Davisville Station.
