The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is the largest transit authority in Canada; it operates buses, streetcars, subways, and rapid transit lines in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The TTC operates 149 surface transit routes, of which 148 routes make 243 connections with a subway or rapid transit station during weekday rush hours. In 2006, the TTC carried 444,544,000 passengers, 3,229,000 passengers daily (2,033,000 revenue passengers). The TTC employed 10,930 personnel in 2006.

The TTC operates the third most heavily-used urban mass transit system in North America (after the New York City Transit Authority and the Mexico City Metro). In 2007, the TTC carried 1.5 million passengers per day, and there were 459,769,000 passenger trips in total. The average daily ridership exceeds 2.46 million passengers: 1,197,000 through bus, 328,700 by streetcar, 35,300 by intermediate rail, and 901,400 by subway. The TTC also provides door-to-door services for persons with physical disabilities known as Wheel-Trans; about 5,500 trips are made through this service daily. The TTC employed 11,235 personnel in 2007.

Colloquially, the subway cars were known as "red rockets", a nickname originally given to Gloucester subway cars which were painted bright red and which have since been retired. Its legacy lives on as the TTC uses the phrase to advertise the service, such as "Ride the Rocket" in advertising material, and "Rocket" in the names of some express buses. Another common slogan is "The Better Way".
