PRESTO is the electronic payment system that eliminates the need for tokens, passes or cash. PRESTO works across 11 transit agencies in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area and Ottawa, making paying for transit simple, convenient and secure. Plus, it saves you money!  

So, what kind of traveller are you?
To get started, just purchase your card at a participating Shoppers Drug Mart store and set your fare type.  

If you’re a child, youth or senior looking to take advantage of great PRESTO fare discounts, bring along photo ID for proof of age. For post-secondary students wanting to use their PRESTO card on the TTC, you’ll need to pick up a TTC Post-Secondary ID—you can get those at the Sherbourne subway station or during a scheduled TTC photo ID shoot at your school.  

Then, become a PRESTO card pro!
Register your card by creating a ‘My PRESTO Account’ on prestocard.ca It gives you easy online access to great tools—like Autoload or a full transaction history. But, most especially, it protects your card if it’s lost or damaged.  

If your card is lost, damaged or stolen, just log in to your My PRESTO Account to deactivate it. You won’t be able to use your old card, but your balance and all your stored information—including your fare type, Autoload and Autorenew settings and transaction history—can be easily transferred to a new PRESTO card.
