TTC Monthly Pass
The adult and senior TTC Monthly Passes on PRESTO cost the same as a Metropass. An adult pass is $146.25 and a senior pass is $116.75. A youth and post-secondary student Monthly Pass will be available starting with the September pass period.
If you do not already have a PRESTO card you will need to purchase a card for $6. Cards purchased online at prestocard.ca take 7-10 business days to arrive in the mail. Cards purchased at a Gateway Newstands within the TTC subway stations cost $20. This cost includes the $6 card fee and a balance of $14. If a Monthly Pass is loaded onto one of these cards, it is separate from the $14 balance, which can be used to pay fares on other transit agencies that use PRESTO or on the TTC when a pass isn’t loaded onto a card. This balance does not expire.
