The board of the Toronto Transit Commission approved a discounted transit pass for post-secondary institutions, which charge students $280 a semester via their tuition if their school opted into the program. 

In an effort led by Ryerson University, Toronto-based institutions including OCAD University, Univeristy of Toronto, York University, Centennial College, George Brown College, Humber College and Seneca College were named as stakeholders in the consultation program.

Now that the TTC has approved the program, Humber College along with the other institutions would have to hold a student referendum to be able to opt into the program.

Unlike Ryerson and several of the other institutions involved in the process, Humber College was relatively quiet about their involvement.

IGNITE student leadership did not reply to request for comment from The Avro Post sent weeks ago when the Eyeopener first reported the school was involved.

It is unclear whether the University of Guelph-Humber would count for the pass.

Each participating post-secondary school would have to agree to a four-year term with the program.
