Saying it's "the right thing to do" in the wake of the 14-year-old girl's death last week, CEO Andy Byford has authorized the TTC to contribute $20,000 toward Amaria Diljohn's funeral costs. 

Diljohn died Friday after she was struck by a TTC bus in Scarborough. The police are continuing to investigate the incident. So far no charges have been laid against the 27-year-old driver.

Police have yet to say whether the driver, whose bus did not stay at the intersection after Diljohn was hit, was aware that a pedestrian had been struck.

Byford has said the TTC will cooperate fully with the investigation.

Yesterday the TTC announced it will accelerate a review of how its drivers are trained and recruited in response to Diljohn's death. He also said TTC officials are "devastated" about the girl's death.

It is still unclear whether the Diljohn family will accept the offer.
