You need to activate your E-Ticket before you board a transit vehicle. Just before you board, open the PRESTO E-Tickets App, select the E-Ticket you want to use and then select “Activate.” The activation can take up to 60 seconds, depending on the transit agency you are travelling with:
- Durham Transit - 60 seconds
- Hamilton Street Railway - 0 seconds
Once you board, your E-Ticket is your proof of payment.
