Thanks to the new fare increase, being implemented in March, TTC metropasses will be a complete waste of money unless you plan on riding the TTC at least 51 times over the course of the month. That's 13 times a week. That's really not cool, especially considering the fact that metropasses are meant to be providing some sort of discount or convenience to clients.
What's convenient about spending half your paycheck on a metropass? Or having to go out when you don't necessarily want to just to feel like you didn't blow your money on a useless piece of plastic? According to the Toronto Star, despite the fact that the TTC is the second-most highly used pubic transit system in North America, it's the more expensive than Paris, New York, Boston, and Berlin.
