Haven't gone PRESTO yet? It's time!

Here's what you do... 

1) Get your card 


Free PRESTO cards are available for adults, students and seniors at many DRT Sales Locations beginning September 25, 2013. 
PRESTO is not available for DRT Specialized Services clients at this time.  

2) Load your card 

Your PRESTO card is:
FLEXIBLE - pay per month or pay per ride... you decide!
CONVENIENT - no more special trips to the ticket counter! Simply purchase online. 
TRANSFERABLE - one card can be used by multiple people in one household if in the same fare category!
EASY - just tap the card reader when you board the bus!
Are you a student or senior? All cards default to adult fares, so you must set your concession in person at DRT Westney Division, DRT Headquarters or any GO Transit Lakeshore East rail station before you load your PRESTO card for the first time. Once your concession has been set, you are free to load your card online or at the locations listed below.
