Cards bought online without creating an account or cards bought in person at a Customer Service Outlet, Shoppers Drug Mart location, Fare Vending Machine or Ticket Vending Machine do not need to be activated. If you ordered your card online and created an account at the same time, it must be activated before it can be used. You can activate your card by following the steps below:
Enter your 17 digit PRESTO card number and PIN below and select 'Activate'.
It can take up to 24 hours to process your activation. During this time you won't be able to use your card. After waiting 24 hours, you must tap on a PRESTO device within 30 days to complete the activation process.
Travel with your PRESTO card and tap on a fare payment device to pay.
