Personally I was always skeptical if smarttrack would actually ever get ttc type fares. But Ford won't always be in power so maybe the next government will reduce the fare. I thought it shouldn't be built because it was taking money away from what we all know the city needs. Downtown relief line. Now we have a scaled back smart track with less stations, a danforth extension being studied again and a downtown subway not using subway cars. Great.
well we got close, with the 1.50$ co fare. But this current government did indeed kill that.
Id say if the liberals were in power still I'd expect fare harmonization for Smarttrack, but I doubt it now.
I still see merit in it though, especially in off-loading people who would normally go all the way to Union and then reverse back on TTC to their areas of employment.
