Balance Checkers

Balance Checkers allow you to instantly check your PRESTO card balance at any time.

Hold your card to the Balance Checker to view your balance and recent transactions. The longer you hold your card against the device, the more information you’ll see displayed. You can also tap your card on a Balance Checker to complete an online transaction. Online transactions can take up to 24 hours to be available at all PRESTO devices.

You can also check your balance in real time with the PRESTO App.

All of the new PRESTO fare payment devices installed across the GO Transit network have a Check Balance feature. Press the ‘Mode’ button three times and hold your card against the device to check your balance. Because of this feature on the new PRESTO devices, the older yellow Balance Checker devices are being removed from GO stations.
