PRESTO is an electronic payment system that eliminates the need for tickets, tokens, passes and cash. PRESTO works across local transit in the Greater Toronto, Hamilton and Ottawa areas, which makes paying for your trip simple, convenient and secure.

PRESTO also allows customers to travel seamlessly across multiple transit agencies with the one electronic fare card by tapping their card at stations and on buses.

PRESTO is a key component of Metrolinx's regional transportation plan. For more information about PRESTO and it works, visit our Frequently Asked Questions section.
