End to TTC tickets, tokens and passes

November 30, 2019, will be the last day to buy TTC tickets, tokens and passes at collector booths. You can still use them to pay your fare. Refunds will not be provided. Once you no longer have tickets, tokens and passes, you can switch to a PRESTO card.

November 25, 2019, will be the last day you can buy a GTA Weekly Pass. You’ll be able to pay your fare with the pass until December 1.

Don’t wait to get your PRESTO card. Purchase one today at Fare Vending Machines at all subway station entrances, all Shoppers Drug Mart locations, online at prestocard.ca and at the TTC Customer Service Centre.

PRESTO cards work on the TTC and other transit agencies across the GTA. Learn more

Update for Clonmore and Warden

As part of the City’s initiative with Vision Zero, right turn channels are being eliminated. Intersections across the City with the highest pedestrian and vehicles numbers are being addressed first.

Older intersections were designed, or perhaps just evolved, when standards regarding safety were not a priority.

We now understand that “right turn channels” which allow vehicles to turn right prior to signal lights (such as the situation on the north-west corner of Warden and Clonmore) are not as safe (especially for pedestrians) as intersections without these turning channels.

I have directed Transportation to investigate and reconfigure Clonmore and Warden. Reconfiguration will be a major undertaking as significant City infrastructure must be relocated and there are numerous engineering and technical challenges which require addressing.

In the meantime please take every precaution when navigating this intersection.

RentSafeTO for Tenants

RentSafeTO: Apartment Building Standards is a bylaw enforcement program that ensures apartment building owners comply with building maintenance standards. The program applies to apartment buildings with three or more storeys and 10 or more units.

Residents are encouraged to contact their landlord first to make service requests for issues such as pests, low or no heat, plumbing problems, leaky ceilings or problems in common areas of the building. If you get no action from your landlord and problems persist, you can contact 311 for the RentSafeTO team.
