TTC is another step closer to becoming a token-less system as the Toronto transit agency transitions to PRESTO full time
According to the Toronto Transit Commission, tickets, tokens and passes will officially stop being sold at collector booths on Saturday.
TTC’s hop-on, hop-off transfer drew 3.4M rides in first 4 months of operation
The TTC said a limited number of third-party retailers will continue to sell tickets and tokens, but encourage customers to move to a PRESTO card before Dec. 1.
PRESTO cards are available at all subway stations and Shopper Drug Mart locations.
I was wondering what is the difference between buying single fare vs tokens ? Given that I will need a bus transfer for around 4 hours to wander the area between downtown and reaching some nearby market to yonge square. What is the best for me ? Thanks
For the number of trips you’re taking it’s not really that relevant. You might want to get a day pass though, transfers aren’t time based so you can’t wander around then use the transfer to move on. With your tight timeline I’d consider using taxis or Uber to get around.
Cash fare is 3.25 for a single ride (including transferring to another line *in the same trip*). It is slightly cheaper to buy tokens, but you have to buy in bulk to save — a minimum of 3. As mentioned, you cannot use a transfer to visit a place for hours, then make a return trip on the transfer.
where is the nearest place to buy bus tokens, and where can I buy a pass to all the museums?
If you would like to take the regular bus, you can buy the ticket in the bus.
Regarding your question about the museum, please let us inform you that you can buy the ticket in the museum.
I don’t know about bus passes. Distances are not that long and if you dont want to walk, taxis are not that expensive. The museum passes can be obtained at any of the museums.
You can use the Madrid Metro. There is a station just by the hotel and is much faster than any other transportation in Madrid.
Pass to all the museum is inexistent in Madrid but you can buy at the Turist Office at Plaza Mayor a pass for the main (Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia).
Best way to buy tickets for Madrid museums is on line, even if you are already at Madrid.
TTC subway collector booths will stop selling regular tokens, tickets and passes in a massive effort to push riders to Presto.
The system will continue to accept tokens and tickets for now, but after Saturday TTC customers will only be able to purchase them at some third-party retailers like 7-11 and Shoppers Drug Mart.
“We realize that there are customers out there who have stockpiles of tickets and tokens, so we haven’t set a stop-accepting date in the system,” TTC spokesman Heather Brown said.
