PRESTO card starts today

Ready, set, go – with Presto! Beginning today - Wednesday, August 1, 2007 - GO Transit riders participating in Launch 1 of the Presto fare system can travel using their Presto card.


In Launch 1, Presto cards can be used to pay for GO Train rides between Cooksville or Meadowvale GO Station and Union Station, on the Mississauga Transit shuttle buses that serve these stations, and for TTC rides beginning at Union Station, including the subway and the 510 Spadina and 509 Harbourfront streetcars.


Since late June, hundreds of Mississauga GO Train riders who commute from Cooksville or Meadowvale have been signing up to get their Presto cards. We are fortunate that many also use Mississauga Transit or the TTC from Union Station so a number of people are able to demonstrate seamless transfers between transit systems.

Guess that is why I could not find the reader when I went to the GTTA meeting :) It had not started yet.
