It’s a busy day for the TTC, as commissioners will be voting on the 2016 budget at City Hall.
On the table today includes a number of proposals, including a slew of fare increase options in an attempt to balance the books. The transit agency is currently facing a $53-million budget shortfall.
The most notable increase would hike cash fares around $0.25.
The commission will also be looking at freezing the cost of a Metropass, while voting on a measure that would allow them to hold on to security footage for a longer period of time.
As it currently stands, TTC buses and streetcars only retain videos for a 15-hour period. Officials with the TTC are looking to extend it to 72 hours to give residents more time to report on something days after an event has occurred.
The vote is mainly a response to an investigation one year ago when a teenage girl went to police to report an assault and there was no video evidence to support her claim.
