Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)

The Toronto Transit Commission is North America’s third largest transit system and has been in service for more than 100 years. The commission delivers subway, streetcar, bus and paratransit service to Canada’s largest city, and has served over 31 billion customers. It has an annual operating budget of $1.9 billion, where more than 70 per cent of that is recovered from the fare box.
