All's rising that fares at the TTC

The unfortunately inept group of city councillors who've ended up as our TTC Commissioners have raised just about all fares - cash, token, Metropass to pay for this year's bump up in costs.

Again they are whining about it being the Province's fault - this despite the increased provincial funding for operations over the last four or five year. It seems that it's never enough. Well, of course it's never enough if you are not managing costs.

hmm - I wonder if windbag TTC Chair Howard Moscoe regrets telegraphing what the TTC was willing to grant in wage increases during collective bargaining last fall. Of course not - it isn't his money.
