Pass the Buck

0430_ttcwait.jpgBecause nothing says “I’m sorry” like cash in hand, the TTC has just announced a fleet of refunds for all day passes, metropasses, weekly passes, GTA passes.
As repentance for that whole surprise strike thing, owners of an adult metropass will get $7.50 back (or $7.00 for those with the Metropass Discount Plan); those with an adult weekly pass will pocket $9.50; and those with a day pass for April 25 will get $3.00 for two hours of non-use. There are other discounts for students and seniors, as well. The refunds aren’t much, but they’re something, and they all reflect a full discount for the service denied.
To claim your money, turn in your pass at any ticket collector’s booth, or at the Metropass Discount Plan office at the TTC headquarters (1900 Yonge Street, at Davisville) from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Whichever option you choose, you’ve got until May 30, 2008 to get back what you’re owed.
