Starting Wednesday, TTC riders who receive social assistance through Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program can start applying to ride the rocket at discounted rates.

With the Fair Pass Discount program, single rides will cost $2 instead of the regular PRESTO card fare of $3 and monthly TTC passes can be bought for $115.50.

Only people who don’t already receive transit supports equal to or over $100 through their OW or ODSP coverage are eligible.

PROMPT (Poverty Reduction of Muskoka Planning Table) is holding a Rural Poverty Summit in Muskoka on May 1st and 2nd, 2018. The Summit will be held at Camp Crossroads in Torrance, Ontario on Lake Muskoka. Participants are people with lived experience of poverty and their allies. We hope people will come from districts around us and other rural communities. PROMPT is covering the cost of accommodation and food for the Summit. We hope that local areas can cover the cost to get to and from the conference. But if that`s not possible, please get in touch anyway. If you want to be there, we’ll find a way.

To register for the Summit please contact Susan Campbell at 1(800) 263-4819 or (705) 645-6607 or email her at campbels@lao.on.ca. Registration closes April 14, 2018.
