Does a PRESTO card save money?

So, what will it be? A trip to the top of the CN Tower or a snapshot with the Stanley Cup? A trip through time at the ROM, an out-of-this-world experience at the Museum of Illusions, or an interactive lesson at the Ontario Science Centre? 

Whatever you decide, transit is the most affordable way to get there.

Hop on a GO Bus or GO Train and don’t forget - kids 12 and under always ride free on GO Transit!

And if you're heading to the ROM, Science Centre or somewhere further than walking distance from Union Station, you can connect to the TTC to complete the final leg of your journey for free thanks to Ontario’s One Fare Program.

The recently launched program means transit riders only pay once when traveling between TTC and GO Transit, Brampton Transit, Durham Region Transit, MiWay and York Region Transit. 

Simply tap with a PRESTO card, credit or debit, or PRESTO in Google Wallet and Ontario’s One Fare Program savings will automatically be applied.
