How to buy fares and passes

All you need to know about purchasing fares and passes when you travel with the TTC

You need a PRESTO Card, one-ride, two-ride or day pass PRESTO Ticket, TTC ticket, token, day pass, transfer, debit or credit card, or exact cash to pay your fare on the TTC. Operators on buses and streetcars do not sell fares or carry change, so you must have a form of payment ready before you board a vehicle.

You can purchase a PRESTO card and load it with money for pay-as-you-go travel or a monthly pass for unlimited travel, at the Fare Vending Machines at all subway stations. You can also purchase a one-ride, two-ride or day pass PRESTO Ticket at these machines as well. PRESTO cards and PRESTO Tickets are also available at all Shoppers Drug Mart locations, online at and at the TTC Customer Service Centre, above Davisville Station.

If you require your card to deduct a youth or senior fare, or want to load a youth, senior, or post-secondary monthly pass onto your card, you will need to take it to a Shoppers Drug Mart store or to the TTC Customer Service Centre, above Davisville Station to change the setting on your card. You must bring government issued identification or your TTC post-secondary photo identification card.

TTC tickets, tokens and passes

TTC tickets, tokens and passes are no longer available for sale in subway stations.

You can still use previously purchased TTC tickets, tokens or passes you have to pay your fare. No end date has been set for when the TTC will stop accepting TTC tickets, tokens or cash. Refunds will not be provided so you are encouraged to use your TTC tickets, tokens and passes.
