The Presto card system has been approved for a full roll out over the next few months. I have been using the PRESTO fare card and find it easy to use. With a simple tap of a card the system calculates the fare for your trip and deducts it from the balance stored on your card or recognizing that you have a valid pass for that month.
Information and details are available on the OC Transpo website. Please read the information on Presto carefully once receiving a card and you will soon find it a handy system. The PRESTO card normally costs $6 which includes insurance for the value if the card is lost. This year 200,000 free cards will be distributed to start the system. More info.
