The University of Toronto Students’ Union (UTSU) is seeking the consent of its members at the St. George Campus to establish a non-refundable U-Pass fee of up to $322.50 per session (including the Summer session), as of the Fall 2018 session. Members will only be charged the fee for sessions in which they are enrolled. The Board of Directors of the UTSU will be authorized to increase the fee by up to 5% per year, in order to account for the cost of administration and increases in the cost of transit.
In the event of a “Yes” vote, every member of the UTSU will be entitled to a PRESTO-based U-Pass, which will grant unlimited, semester-long use of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) transit system at no additional cost. A Post-Secondary Metropass currently costs $116.75 per month. The U-Pass fee will be up to $80.60 per month in 2018-19.
Are you in favour of establishing a non-refundable U-Pass fee, as described in the preamble?
