The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is North America’s third largest transit system and has been recognized as one of the top places to work in the GTA. Guided by a forward-thinking strategic plan, the TTC’s vision is to be a transit system that makes Toronto proud.

The TTC’s recruitment efforts are directly aligned to its mission of providing “a reliable, efficient, and integrated bus, streetcar and subway system that draws its high standards of customer care from our rich traditions of safety, service and courtesy.”

The Toronto Transit Commission is currently accepting Summer Student applications for Summer 2022 – May 2, 2022 to August 27, 2022.

Some positions may involve working outdoors, while others may require specific licenses, skillsets and/or work experience.
