Update on U-Pass

Update on U-Pass

Since May, VP External Anne Boucher and her counterparts at Ryerson, OCAD, and George Brown have been working on getting a U-Pass for UTSG students. Last week, the TTC board voted to move forward with a PRESTO-based U-Pass. Consultations will start in January, and the TTC will make a final decision by March at the latest.

This is a win for students. Student politicians talked about a U-Pass for years, but nothing happened–until now.

The TTC report is available here:
