New TTC 12 Month Pass coming to PRESTO
Starting May 24, a new 12 Month Pass will be available for adult PRESTO card customers to purchase for the June pass period. A senior/youth 12 Month Pass will be available later this summer.
The 12 Month Pass replaces the Metropass Discount Plan (MDP) pass, which is expected to end by Dec. 31, 2018. The 12 Month Pass will cost the same ($134 per month for adults), provide the same unlimited travel on all regular TTC routes and require the same 12 month commitment as MDP.
Adult MDP customers who switch to the 12 Month Pass before the end of the year or the end of their current contract must cancel their contract with the TTC and sign a new contract with PRESTO. Cancellation fees will be waived.
To sign up for the adult 12 Month Pass customers must:
- Have a PRESTO card. Cards can be purchased online at prestocard.ca, at Gateway Newsstands in TTC subway stations, from PRESTO Fare Vending Machines at select subway stations or at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations.
- Create a My PRESTO Account at prestocard.ca.
- Purchase the 12 Month Pass at prestocard.ca.
The TTC is no longer accepting applications for the adult MDP pass; customers who are not part of the MDP program and want a discounted yearly pass must apply for the 12 Month Pass instead. Senior/youth applications are available on ttc.ca and will continue to be accepted until early August.
More TTC fare payment options, including youth and senior monthly passes, and a two-hour time based transfer will be introduced on PRESTO later this summer.
