GTA Fare System Project

Our guest speaker will be Mr. David Smith, Senior Manager, GTA Fare System Project

An integrated inter-regional transit system can influence more people to leave their cars at home and reduce congestion on our roads and highways, thus supporting the goals of the GTTA and the province's Greater Golden Horseshoe Growth Plan.

The Province, municipalities and transit systems are working together to make transit more convenient for commuters by creating a virtual integrated transit system in the GTA through the GTA Fare System. The card to be utilized by 9 transit systems will make travel easier within and between transit systems in the GTA and Hamilton. The current fare media including transit tickets, transfers and paper passes will disappear as the system is implemented across the GTA. The GTA Fare System is built on a smart card technology which is more secure than existing bank cards and the system will have advanced features to prevent and detect fraud. The presentation will include project objectives, status, branding, governance, contract and progress to date.
