  1. Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    that's very true also TTC enforcement on buses was lacking around 2014ish when they got rid of the TTC Student Discount Card Photo ID for people aged 13-15 and also later on made kids go free without an id, like when i used to be a teen going to high school there was always these few drivers i know of who would enforce the Student discount card with student tickets, cash fare and metropass and if you happened to not have your TTC student discount Card Photo ID with Student cash fare or ticket they will tell you to deposit adult fare or double tickets but i remember if you had a metropass without the TTC ID Card this 1 guy would confiscate it away from you and tell you to get off the bus, and if you don't get out of the bus he takes it out of service and calls transit control and they dispatch the police would actually give you a fine because this happened to one of my friends like years ago lol a lot of people got familiar with that guy and avoided his bus because he actually cared about the fares but 1 thing to keep in mind is that majority TTC employees were never consistent with enforcement because if you see the ones who cares about the fares simply wait for the next bus behind. but i believe they should honestly go back to that system when they implement photo ID on presto cards for Kids 10-12 and Youths 13-19 and Post Secondary users if the driver doesn't see the picture match the user, it should be consificated then it would be less likely for people to abuse concessions on presto which will be soon implemented.

    Their power is limited and not backed up by the supervisors, they are unable to take a bus out of service or kick off the fare evader unless the customer begins acting unruly. but correct me if I'm wrong.
  3. TTC in the news

    what I find ridiculous is bus drivers can't even take buses out of service if someone doesn't pay because of a policy that took into effect like 2 years ago where bus drivers can't enforce the fares anymore so more fare evasion can occur without anything being done about it http://www.torontosun.com/2015/03/31/ttc-tells-operators-to-let-fare-cheats-go-for-safety-reasons I even spoke to some bus drivers who used to be strict on Photo ID for high school students before the changes happened in 2014 and a driver told me the TTC is a joke now you have to allow people on without id's, or short on change and you could get in trouble if you confront fare evaders he just stop caring about fares because his managements gives him a hard time so he is no longer strict or even cares about the fares and metropass fraud which is kind of sad and shows the reflection of the TTC's management. So their solution is to silence the strict drivers and just raise the fares on the honest customers.

    What I believe TTC should do is Kids must show photo ID, without ID they should pay Adult fare as a penalty not student fare since you should be showing your ID anyways to pay senior/student fare actually, also if Students Fail to show ID adult fare should be paid just like the old days. and Metropasses should get taken away if they fail to show ID because back then Fare Collectors and Drivers used to do that that could probably solve the money issues.
