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 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.

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 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.

TTC subway collector booths will stop selling regular tokens, tickets and passes in a massive effort to push riders to Presto.

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) has stopped selling tickets, tokens and passes at subway stations and has switched to its easier and more convenient PRESTO fare collection system.

PRESTO is a fare card that is tapped before entering a TTC bus or subway. According to TTC, the PRESTO adoption rate among customers is 83 percent.

For most TTC customers, tickets and tokens are already a distant memory. Customers have been able to use PRESTO across the TTC network since the end of 2016, with the rollout of the fare system to all subway stations and more than 2,000 TTC surface vehicles.

PRESTO cards are available at all subway stations and Shopper Drug Mart locations.

On November 30, the TTC will stop selling tickets, tokens and its remaining pass products at subway stations. If you’re a PRESTO customer making your way around Toronto, here’s what you need to know about the switch.

It’s a routine that Chris Jenkins has adopted for nearly four years during his commute – tapping his PRESTO fare card before entering a TTC bus or subway.

Once an avid token user, he made the switch because it was easier and more convenient.

“If I’m rushing, I can just tap and get on but if I had to buy tokens, I had to wait in line,” says Jenkins.
