The Province of Ontario and the City of Toronto have agreed to load the TTC subway system. In a statement, Ford said it was “very happy” with the agreement with the city. The transit agency says it received an additional $472 million under Phase 2 of the deal. The province also told the city that it was authorized to secure $304 million in funding to deal with additional passenger pressure.

The agreement also states that the group will consider whether the province can assume sole responsibility for providing future projects and not own these assets or enter into a full subway download. In November 2012, Metrolinx and TTC signed a framework agreement defining the roles, responsibilities and long-term relationships for the supply of PRESTO to the TTC. Following a request from TTC in early 2015 to accelerate the presto deployment plan, Metrolinx has developed a plan that allows transit drivers to use the PRESTO fare card on all subways, buses, trams and paratransites by the end of 2016, one year ahead of schedule. The projected revenue for 2021, lower than the $1.35 billion forecast this year, is the result of a decrease in passenger numbers for much of next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In August, the TTC received $404 million in assistance to deal with the effects of the pandemic between April 1 and September 30. In addition, the TTC does not expect passenger numbers to recover until 2022 and 2023 “if a new normal emerges after the pandemic and restrictions on participation in workstations, schools and events are lifted.” “The necessary maintenance and investments in the metro system have been postponed for too long. We have also been waiting for metro extensions for far too long. The new metro has been stuck in the bureaucracy for years. It`s time to take action and speed things up,” he said. PRESTO is installed in selected TTC metro stations on board TTC`s entire fleet of trams and is currently being deployed in the remaining metro stations and surface vehicles (buses and wheel-trans). Information on stations and vehicles that were previously capable of PRESTO can be found at getpres.to. The budget is expected to be presented to the TTC Board of Directors on Monday. “The proposed budget ensures that we will continue to keep the City of Toronto ahead until the end of the pandemic and beyond.
