The TTC is today making one-ride, two-ride and day pass PRESTO Tickets available at Fare Vending Machines in stations from Vaughan Metropolitan Centre to Wilson. These eight stations join Lawrence West and Yorkdale stations, where the Tickets have been sold since April 5.

PRESTO Tickets are ideal for infrequent travelers and visitors to the city. They will be available at all 75 TTC stations this summer and at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations in Toronto later this year.

One-ride tickets cost $3.25 (same as a cash fare), two-ride tickets cost $6.50 and the day pass ticket costs $13.00. All customers over 12 years of age will be required to have their own PRESTO Ticket when travelling on the TTC. This also applies to the day pass ticket. A group / family is not available on the day pass PRESTO Ticket. PRESTO Tickets are eligible for the two-hour transfer.

Customers are reminded they must tap the PRESTO Ticket every time they enter a subway station and whenever they board a bus or streetcar. A tapped PRESTO Ticket is a customer’s Proof-of-Payment and should be carried at all times while riding. Once their fare has been used or their transfer or day pass has expired, they must purchase another PRESTO Ticket or pay by cash. Unlike a PRESTO card, PRESTO Tickets are not reloadable.

PRESTO Tickets are valid only on the TTC.

Re-loadable PRESTO cards provide the lowest fare at $3.10 per ride for adults and $2.15 for youths/seniors. They are available for $6 and can be loaded with money to pay for everything form single rides to a monthly pass. They are available at all Fare Vending Machines, Shoppers Drug Mart locations, online at prestocard.ca and the TTC Customer Service Centre at Davisville Station. PRESTO cards can also be set to automatically top-up funds or renew passes so that customers never run out of funds. By setting up a My PRESTO Account, the card balance and monthly pass can be protected if the card is ever lost or damaged.
