Hello PRESTO Ticket

A PRESTO Ticket is a limited-use paper PRESTO card that can be used to pay your fare on the TTC. If you’re an occasional TTC rider or just visiting Toronto, a PRESTO Ticket may be perfect for you.

Buy Your PRESTO Ticket at the Station

PRESTO Tickets can be bought at Fare Vending Machines at any TTC subway station, and at any Shoppers Drug Mart location in Toronto.

PRESTO Ticket Prices

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.

How to Use PRESTO Tickets

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.

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. 

When do Paper Tickets Expire?

Your PRESTO Ticket will have an expiry date printed on the back.

If your PRESTO Ticket does not seem to be working, you can check it on a Fare Vending Machine, or on the Wheel Trans fare payment devices. If it doesn’t appear to be working, you can fill out a paper form to request a replacement.

Your PRESTO Ticket also can’t be reloaded because it is designed for limited use.

Check My Ticket

Check to see if a ticket is still valid by using a Fare Vending Machine or on the Wheel Trans fare payment devices.
