Wieler posted the image on Twitter on Thursday with the caption “Yup, look how my TTC dollars R being spent.” Roughly 13,000 people have viewed the Twitter image.
The transit rider said he took the photograph to share among his friend with also the thought of the recent fare hike but did not want to get anyone in trouble. Wieler claims he stood at the TTC booth for five minutes as many riders did not pay their fare.
