TTC Photo ID Card for Discounted TTC Metropasses

Full-time students are eligible to save over $22 on their monthly Metropass cost!

To receive this discounted Post-Secondary Student Metropass, you must purchase a Post-Secondary TTC Student Photo ID and be enrolled as a full-time student.

How to get a TTC Post-Secondary Photo ID Card

1. Pre-register:

The TTC contractor for the Photo ID card is Trans I.D. Services.  Pre-register at https://www.transidservices.com/p25a/york  (2013-2014 updates will be available shortly). This will make your visit to the on-campus photo location more efficient.

2. Bring the items needed to get your identification card:

  • Your York University student card
  • A printed copy of your course timetable and/or statement of your student financial account to prove full-time student status
  • $7 cash in exact change. Cheque, debit and credit card payments are not possible

3. Get your photo identification made:

For your convenience, Trans I.D. Services will be on the Keele campus on the following dates:

Date                               Time                Location
Wed, August 28           9am-5pm       Chancellor’s Room (The Underground Pub, Student Centre)
Tue, October 29           9am-5pm       Winters Dining Hall (The Underground Pub, Student Centre)

Students getting their first Post-Secondary Photo ID card are strongly encouraged to attend the August 28 date so that they can then purchase the September 2013 Metropass at a discount.

Students renewing their cards have until October 31 to get a new photo identification, so they are encouraged to attend the October 29 date.

Students may also obtain their TTC Post-Secondary Photo ID card from the TTC’s Sherbourne Station Photo ID Centre with $5.25 exact change, cash only. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday 3pm-7pm and Saturday 10am-4pm, except statutory holidays. On the first and last business day of each month, the Centre is open 10am-7 pm (Monday to Friday only).
