TTC to formally end token sales

This Fri., March 24 is the last day that TTC tokens can be purchased from any location where fares are sold. While tokens have not been sold directly by the TTC since Dec. 2019, they have been available at select third party retailers.


With the modernization of the TTC’s fare purchasing system, most customers have already made the switch to PRESTO. Fares purchased using PRESTO now account for more than 90 per cent of TTC ridership.


Customers can continue using previously purchased TTC tokens or tickets to pay their fare. The cost of a fare using PRESTO is the same price as a token.


PRESTO cards are available for sale at Fare Vending Machines in all subway stations, Shoppers Drug Mart locations, online at, through the PRESTO App, or at the TTC Customer Service Centre at Davisville Station.


PRESTO card customers have access to many benefits, including:


  • paying the lowest fare by default;
  • being able to hop on and off the TTC within a two-hour period without being charged a second fare;
  • the ability to set up auto-renew and auto-load so they never have to worry about having an adequate balance on their card;
  • balance protection for cards registered on a My PRESTO Account; and,
  • the ability to use one card to pay a fare across 10 other transit agencies that use PRESTO.
