Have you got your PRESTO card yet? TTC Metropass now on PRESTO10/6/17 6:00 AM
The implementation of PRESTO continues apace across the TTC.
Work is well underway to convert the remaining turnstiles and high gates in subway stations to modern, efficient, paddle-style equipment that feature PRESTO readers.
Obtaining a PRESTO card has never been easier with 53 Shoppers Drug Mart stores now selling with more coming by the end of this month.
All TTC stations will soon be equipped with self-serve machines where customers can check their balance and reload their card. By year end, we will start to receive machines that also sell PRESTO cards.
By the end of 2018, the TTC will have phased out tokens, tickets and passes in favour of PRESTO. Adult and Senior Metropass users are strongly encouraged to now switch to PRESTO to continue to reap the benefits of the Metropass without the need to line up to buy a new pass every month. MDP customers will begin the switch to PRESTO starting in 2018.
Further details about how to switch to PRESTO can be found at prestocard.ca and at ttc.ca.
It’s the easy way to get around in Toronto.
