Activate my PRESTO card

Important: You don't need to activate your card if you bought it at a Customer Service Outlet, Shoppers Drug Mart location, a PRESTO machine or online without creating an account. You can activate your card by following these steps:


Enter your 17 digit PRESTO card number and four digit Contact Centre 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.
