PRESTO around the GTHA and Ottawa

Currently, more than 2 million transit riders are using PRESTO across GO Transit, UP Express, and nine transit agencies across the “905” and Ottawa, including:

Oakville Transit

PRESTO has been available on Oakville Transit since 2009. The City of Oakville was one of the first areas to receive PRESTO, with devices installed on Oakville Transit and at Oakville area GO stations.

The rollout of PRESTO across the entire Oakville Transit network was complete in 2010.
