Metrolinx testing disposable tickets
Hover your iphone camera or Android app for more Toronto news at thestar.com TTC customers could catch a glimpse of a new kind of Presto card this month.
Starting Tuesday, Metrolinx, the provincial transit agency that owns the fare card system now deployed across the TTC, will be performing field tests of disposable, “limited-use” Presto tickets at two subway stations.
The limited-use tickets are designed to allow customers to pay for single rides, round trips or day passes without buying a permanent Presto card, and aren’t expected to be available to the public until June 2019. Metrolinx employees will perform the tests at St. Clair West and Union subway stations by loading Presto vending machines with the new tickets and then using them on TTC fare gates.
