Register for the A Better City TMA Express Lane Program and we’ll reimburse you up to $150 for the cost of your monthly pass over the course of three months when you switch from driving alone. 

Who is eligible?

How does the program work?

Participating individuals logging at least six express bus trips per week earn $50 toward their monthly fare pass each month, for a total of up to three months.

Reimbursements apply for purchases made in the same calendar year and must be submitted by December 16, 2024.
