Effective March 1, 2015, children 12 years of age and under ride free.

The TTC Child Proof-of-Age Card is available for children who are tall for their age. The card lets TTC drivers and collectors verify that the child is 12 or younger and eligible to ride for free. Every September we send a quantity of these cards to every elementary and secondary school in Toronto that has 11 and 12 year old students.

To obtain one of these Proof-of-Age Cards at your school, please see your school administration. In addition to their availability at schools, you can get a Child Proof-of-Age Card by calling TTC Customer Service at (416) 393-4636.

Children ages 6 to 12 will require a PRESTO card. It will not carry a balance but children will be able to tap on and enter the system. To set a child fare type on a PRESTO card you must go to Shoppers Drug Mart or visit the TTC’s Customer Service Centre above Davisville Station. Cards cost $6 and require a minimum $10 load. The money won’t expire and can be used on other transit agencies that use PRESTO. Valid government issued photo identification is needed to set a child fare type.
