More Ways to Save with Metrolinx
One Fair Discount Program

Metrolinx has launched Ontario’s One Fare Program. This program aims to provide student discounts for their commutes. Students will only pay once they connect to and from the TTC and Go Transit, Brampton Transit, Durham Region Transit, MiWay and York Region Transit. 

How it works: 

  • PRESTO will automatically calculate the discount and apply it to a PRESTO card, credit card, debit card or PRESTO in Google Wallet when travelling within the transits. 
  • Transit riders are requested to tap on and off using the same card when travelling within different transits. 
  • For trips connecting between TTC and GO Transit, the TTC component of the trip will become free, regardless of the travel direction and will be discounted from the overall trip cost. 
  • For trips connecting between TTC and local transit systems, the second portion of the trip will become free. 

Note: One Fare Program discount is eligible if travelling times are within 2 hours.

   TTC Student Photo ID:

The TTC Student photo ID cards may be purchased at Bathurst Station. In order to purchase the card and have your photo taken and you must present your current, valid Centennial College student ID (MyCard) along with your official myCentennial timetable to prove full-time status and a government-issued photo ID such as a drivers’ license or passport.

Learn more about the TTC Student Photo ID.

The photo ID card will cost $7 at the station. The Post-Secondary TTC Photo ID Card is not a substitute for a TTC Student Monthly Metropass; the photo ID allows you to purchase a Metropass for the student rate of $128.15/month rather than the full adult rate of $156.00/month.
