Getting around Toronto
It’s hard to navigate a new city. In Toronto, it can be as easy as 1-2-3, but there are a couple things you might want to know before you tap on. We’ve put together a quick guide of how to start using your new city’s public transport to make it easier for you.
How to Ride the TCC
First, you will need to PURCHASE a Presto card.
Buy a PRESTO card for $6 from any of the following:
• Fare Vending Machine, in person at any subway station
• PRESTO app
Fare Vending Machines can be found at all TTC subway stations and allow you to:
• Buy adult PRESTO cards with cash, debit, or credit card
• Load funds or adult passes instantly with cash, debit card, or credit card
• Check your balance and transaction history
• Buy PRESTO Tickets
Once you have your PRESTO card, simply find the green machine on the TTC and “tap on”.
The great thing about paying your fare using a PRESTO card or PRESTO ticket is that you have a two-hour transfer that allows you to use the TTC as much as you like within that two-hour period of tapping on.
