Effective January 1, 2014, a support person accompanying a person with a disability will not be required to pay a fare when travelling on the Toronto Transit Commission (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 and/or mobility.
From January 1, 2014 to March 29, 2014, TTC will permit a support person to travel with a paying customer on an honour system. Starting Sunday, March 30, customers will require a Support Person Assistance Card in order for the support person to travel with the card holder on a single fare. Please visit http://www.ttc.ca/Fares_and_passes/Support_Person_Card/index.jsp for more information and to apply for the Support Person Card.
