You will always need to tap on when you begin your trip To tap on, touch your PRESTO card to the green PRESTO reader located in side the vehicle or on the turnstile/fare gate in the subway station.

If you are transferring between streetcar and subway, tap when you board the streetcar and when you enter the subway station. The same applies when travelling from subway o streetcar - tap on when entering the subway station and tap again when transferring to the streetcar. Only one fare will be charged and you do not require a transfer.

You can load money into your PRESTO card by:

1. Online at prestocard.ca

2.With Autoload if your card is registered. Autoload automatically loads money to your card from your bank account or credit card whenever your balance falls below a set minimum balance chosen by you.

3. By phone at 1-877-378-6123 or 1-800-855-0511, provided the card is registered and a requested reload agreement is in place.
