We know none of our lovely Spacing readers would be silly enough to do any of these things, but if you ride the TTC, take note…
Effective October 12, the TTC’s revised Bylaw No. 1 will take effect, increasing the set fines for a number of offenses and adding a few new ones to the list. In addition to the usual wrongdoings, the TTC will now have the authority to charge fines for misuse of priority seating, obstructing doors, laying across seats or putting your feet on the seats.
Over the past several months Special Constables have been educating TTC riders about the upcoming changes including the smoking fine jumping from $95 to $195, or the fine for ‘altering fare media’ which has gone up to $345. Last year, the TTC issued approximately $600,000 in fines.
