Fair Student Fares
We have to pay for all sorts of things at university, and our education becomes less accessible when we cannot afford the cost of getting to campus. Rising transit fees are a huge concern for students, the majority of whom commute to campus. We have united in a coalition with students’ unions across the Greater Toronto Area to fight for more student discounts and accessible transit.
For too many consecutive years, Toronto City Council has proposed Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) cuts and increased TTC fares. Students in other cities as close as Mississauga have Universal Passes – a significantly reduced student bus pass that lasts all year. University of Toronto Mississauga students pay less than $100 per semester for this pass, and that cost is comparable to other college and university jurisdictions across Canada. We want to bring a UPASS to UofT.
