Most TTC fares go up on Wednesday.
On the monthly adult Metropass for example, the cost goes up an extra $5.25.
Each token will be an extra nickel but the cash fare stays the same.
That has one of the early declared candidates for Mayor scratching his head.
Former councillor David Socknacki says he'd rather see the TTC's best customers being rewarded by moderating the rate increase and the way to do that would be to put the cash fares up as well.
TTC chair Karen Stintz took a wider view on NEWSTALK 1010 on Monday night.
"I think we do need to start being more thoughtful around how our fares are developed and we need to start thinking about zone fares, particularly when we have Presto implemented, which is a regional fare card," she says.
