PRESTO Frequently Asked Questions

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.

You need a PRESTO Card, one-ride, two-ride or day pass PRESTO Ticket, TTC ticket, token, day pass, transfer, 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.

There is a collector booth located at most stations where you can pay your fare. The following stations do not have collector booths.

Anti-poverty advocates in Toronto say they are concerned that a phaseout of TTC tokens will make it more difficult for the homeless, low income people and seniors to access public transit.

TTC tokens are to be discontinued at the end of 2019. In their place, the TTC will offer a single ride Presto paper ticket that will have an expiry date. The Presto tickets, to be introduced in 2019, will be sold through fare vending machines at subway stations and at Shoppers Drug Mart stores for $3.25, the same price as a cash fare.

Concerns about the impact of the change were raised at a public meeting in downtown Toronto on Tuesday.

All PRESTO cards are automatically set to deduct an adult fare.

You can have your PRESTO card changed to a youth, post-secondary student or senior card at:

PRESTO can be used on all TTC streetcars, buses, including Wheel-Trans and accessible taxis and at every subway station entrance. It can also be used on GO Transit, Union Pearson Express, eight other Greater Toronto Area transit agencies and on OC Transpo in Ottawa.

Starting January 13, 2020, PRESTO card customers can pay their fare on a Wheel-Trans sedan taxi using their monthly pass on their PRESTO card or from the balance on their card to pay-as-they-go.

Customers can continue to use cash, tickets or tokens as well.

Tap your PRESTO card every time you enter a subway station and whenever you board a bus or streetcar, regardless of whether it’s in a station or on the street.

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.
