In little under one month since the implementation of the TTC’s random drug testing policy, five employees have tested positive while on duty.

TTC spokesperson Stuart Green confirmed Tuesday that one more employee has failed a drug test.

The test was administered last week on the employee who is not a driver.

The employees position at the TTC and the type of substance used was not disclosed.

This latest report comes after two other TTC employees failed a drug and alcohol test less than a week ago.

In total, 4 employees have now tested positive for drugs and 1 has tested positive for alcohol.

According to Green, between 6 to 8 people are tested everyday since the policy was put into place on May 8.
