On November 21, 2019 the Ontario Divisional Court made the decision to suspend the opt-out process. As a result, students will be assessed both optional and compulsory ancillary fees effective winter 2020. For additional information please review Ryerson Today.
In fall 2018, a successful referendum was held to offer Ryerson students a Ryerson University Transit Pass (RU-Pass), which was to start in September 2019.
The University was in discussions with the TTC on the implementation of an RU-Pass, when earlier this year, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities released new guidelines for compulsory fees. It clearly stated that only those transit pass programs with fully executed agreements in place prior to January 17, 2019 could be considered compulsory. This was not the case with the RU-Pass.
Given these requirements, the RU-Pass will not proceed for 2019/20 and students will not be charged a fee associated with the RU-Pass.
