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.

SamTrans Mobile App
SamTrans Mobile, the official ticketing app from SamTrans, lets you buy tickets and plan trips on SamTrans and other Bay Area public transit systems (must purchase tickets separately for other systems). Just download the free app, register your debit/credit card in our secure system, and we’ll get you where you need to go.

Monthly Passes
SamTrans Monthly passes are available only on the Clipper Card and may be purchased between the 21stof the month prior to the month the pass is valid until the 15th of the month the pass is valid. The Monthly passes may be loaded on to the Clipper Card at SamTrans headquarters, from any Clipper retail outlet or online at www.clippercard.com (takes up to five days to load).

The TTC will stop selling tickets, tokens and TTC day passes at collector booths on Nov., 30, 2019. Customers will still be able to buy TTC tickets and tokens at some third-party retailers.

While customers will be able to continue using previously purchased TTC tickets, tokens and day passes to pay their fare, those people who do not have large quantities of them remaining, should buy a PRESTO card and load it with money for pay-as-they-go travel. The pay-as-they-go fare is equivalent to the token/ticket fare of $3.10 per adult or $2.15 for youths/seniors.

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

TORONTO —
The Toronto Transit Commission will no longer be selling tokens, tickets or passes at subway stations starting Sunday.

The fare methods are being phased out as the transit system modernizes and continues to encourage people to use Presto cards to pay for travel.

Some third party retailers, and corner stores will still sell tickets and tokens, but TTC spokesperson Heather Brown says making the switch will be beneficial to riders.

“People are resistant to change, but what I would tell our customers is that Presto is a simple way to pay their fare,” Brown told CTV News Toronto Saturday.

She said that 83 per cent of riders have already switched over to Presto cards.

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.

The TTC will stop selling tickets and tokens at collector booths this week

This week will be the last time Toronto commuters can buy TTC tokens, tickets or passes at transit stations in the city.

After November 30, customers will have to migrate to the Presto system, pay their fare in cash, or purchase the older fare types at select third-party retailers such as Shoppers Drug Mart.

The last day to use an existing GTA weekly passes will be December 1, as they and the daily passes won’t be issued anymore.

November 30, 2019, will be the last day to buy #TTC tickets, tokens and passes at collector booths.

You can still use them to pay your fare.

Refunds will not be provided.

Once you no longer have tickets, tokens and passes, switch to @PRESTOcard.

The TTC will stop selling tokens, tickets, GTA weekly and day passes at collector booths on Nov. 30 as they continue to expand the Presto system across the city.

In 2015, the TTC had announced they would phase out tokens and other legacy fare entirely by 2017, but the introduction of the Presto system pushed that timeline back.

In a news release issued Wednesday, the TTC said that customers will still be able to buy tickets and tokens at some third-party retailers.

“While customers will be able to continue using previously purchased tickets, tokens and passes to pay their fare, those people who do not have large quantities of tickets, tokens and passes remaining, are encouraged to move to a Presto card now to avoid potential lineups for cards on Dec.
