UPDATED: No enthusiasm at Ryerson for possible PRESTO changes

Mayor John Tory and TTC Chair Josh Colle asked the transit agency, in an open letter, to explore the effectiveness of time-based transfers for PRESTO users.

Much like the longstanding test project on the St. Clair 512 streetcar, which ran from 2005 until September of this year, the proposed time-based transfers would allow travellers to get on and off any TTC vehicles without restrictions within the time limits set forth – likely between 90 minutes and two hours.

New TTC initiative to combat harassment

A new app and ad campaign from the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) aims to deter harassment and offer increased support to victims.

SafeTTC, launched earlier this month, allows transit riders to report an incident to transit control, or call 911 if it’s an emergency. Users can send texts, photos or videos. The seriousness of the issue will be assessed and transit enforcement officers or police officers will be dispatched as needed.
