You can buy a single-ride, two-ride or day pass PRESTO Ticket at TTC adult fare rates. Senior, youth or group fares are not available on a PRESTO Ticket.

You can only use a PRESTO Ticket for one person per trip. Two-ride and day pass PRESTO Tickets cannot be used for more than one person during the same trip.

Tap your PRESTO Ticket to enter any TTC subway station, streetcar or bus and to transfer. Keep it with you as you ride as your proof of purchase for TTC fare inspections.

A PRESTO Ticket can only be used on the TTC. If you’re travelling on a TTC bus that crosses into Mississauga or York Region, you’ll need to pay the other part of the fare in cash or the appropriate MiWay or YRT fare media.
