A Major Transit Hub And Cheaper TTC Fares Are Coming To Toronto
Subway, trains and buses will all connect! 🚆 🚞 🚍
It seems like everyday in Toronto, there are new improvements to the Toronto transit system emerging and we don't hate it. The Government of Ontario has just announced that commuting will be getting a lot easier for people traveling in Toronto and Hamilton, as they have decided to transform Kipling Station into a major new transit hub.
The redevelopment of Kipling Station will include connections between nearly all major forms of public transit, including subway, regional rail, and inter-regional bus services, all within this single station.
Ontario has decided to combine the subway, GO train and local and regional bus services, including the GO, TTC, and MiWay, into a single hub. The revamped station will include a new terminal and improvements to access for cyclists and pedestrians, with additions like an elevated pedestrian bridge and a designated pick-up/drop-off building.
During the announcement earlier today, Ontario transit officials also announced that thanks to this all-in-one transit hub that helps connect cities in the Toronto-Hamilton area, the cost of commuting for people in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area will be cheaper.
As of January 2018, the cost of TTC fares will decrease for ALL riders who use a PRESTO card to transfer between the GO Transit or the UP Express and The TTC. Adult, senior, youth and student commuters will pay a TTC fare of just $1.50.
