To parents and guardians:

Last year, the TTC made taking transit in Toronto easier for kids, allowing 
children 12 years of age and under to ride for free. Unfortunately, after 
conducting fare inspections  and speaking with transit operators, we have found 
that many students over the age of 12 have been taking advantage of this new 
policy by not paying their TTC fare and pretending to be 12 years of age or 
younger. I'm writing you today seeking your support to help address this 
behaviour with your kid(s).

The TTC fare policy is as follows:

-Children ages 12 and under ride the TTC for free.
-Students, ages 13-19 must pay a $2.00 fare or use a student ticket.
-Students, ages 16-19 must also travel with appropriate identification and when 
asked, must present it to TTC staff. High school or government issued photo ID 
such as a Driver's Licence or Ontario Photo Card are acceptable.

To address fare evasion, TTC Transit Enforcement Officers have been working to 
educate student customers, asking for ID and giving warnings. In the coming 
weeks, we will begin ticketing students who aren't able to prove they have paid 
the appropriate fare. The fine for fare evasion, no matter what age, is $235.00.

I'd like to ask you to speak with your kids to let them know that there are 
consequences to fare evasion and that the TTC takes these matters very 
seriously. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact TTC Customer 
Information at 416-393-4636.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to speak with your family about this
