Tap On. Ride Easy.

PRESTO is the new home of TTC Monthly Passes

PRESTO is the exclusive home for the TTC Monthly Pass. Add an adult, senior, post-secondary or youth TTC Monthly Pass to your PRESTO card to get the same unlimited travel across the TTC as you did with your Metropass, plus many other great benefits!

Downtown Express Routes

TTC customers can now use PRESTO to pay the entire fare for travel on any Downtown Express route. Just tap like you usually do and the base fare and additional Downtown Express fare will both be deducted from your PRESTO card balance.

If you’re transferring from a regular route, only the additional fare will be deducted when you tap on a Downtown Express bus. Children 12 years and under can ride Downtown Express buses for free, like they can on regular TTC routes.

If you load a TTC Monthly Pass, you can now choose to load a TTC Monthly Downtown Express Pass that allows unlimited travel on all regular TTC routes and all Downtown Express routes.

You can find a list of the Downtown Express routes on the TTC website.

TTC Monthly Passes

The current month's passes are available up to the 8th day of the month. Next month's passes are available as early as 12 days before the end of the month.

Did you just receive a new PRESTO card and aren’t sure what to do next?

If this is your first PRESTO card, make sure it is set to the correct Fare Type so that you’re paying the right fare. A senior or youth Fare Type can be set at any participating Shoppers Drug Mart location.

Once you’ve got your card, set up a My PRESTO Account and you can:

  • manage up to 10 PRESTO cards through one My PRESTO Account
  • quickly view your account balance and transaction history
  • protect your card balance if it is ever lost or stolen
  • set up Autorenew for automatic transit pass renewals
  • set up Autoload to automatically add funds when your balance falls below a set amount

If you already have a PRESTO card and have set up your PRESTO Account, you can continue to use that card. You may want to add this new card to your account. Find out how to do that.

PRESTO users can also take advantage of the two-hour TTC transfers

Hop on and off the TTC and switch directions as many times as you want – only with PRESTO! When you start your trip and tap your PRESTO card, your fare will be deducted and a two-hour transfer will automatically be applied to your card. Each time you hop on and off the system or switch directions, just tap your PRESTO card again. As long as you’re within two hours from your first tap, you won’t be charged another fare.
