Tap On. Ride Easy.

Ticket Vending Machines

GO Transit and UP Express are upgrading their ticket vending machines (TVMs) to make using PRESTO even easier.

At an upgraded TVM you can:

  • Load funds with cash, debit or credit card.
  • Buy PRESTO cards at select TVMs. See below for a list of locations that sell PRESTO cards.
  • Check your balance, transaction history and fare type. Cards purchased at TVMs are automatically set as an adult farecard but can be changed at any Customer Service Outlet.
  • Settle overdraft or missed tap off charges (for GO customers only).
  • Activate Autoload or an Online Registration. 

While machines are being upgraded, you can purchase a fare at your station’s customer service counter, other TVMs at your GO or UP station, or load your PRESTO card online.

Here’s where you’ll find upgraded TVMs now, with more to come.
