In other words, what is PRESTO?
PRESTO is a convenient and inexpensive electronic fare payment system that streamlines public transportation use. A higher monthly frequency of travel results in greater savings.
Tap on and off with your PRESTO card or a credit card on a PRESTO device to pay your fare across the entire GO network and other transit systems. Your PRESTO card balance or your credit card will be deducted or charged automatically based on the system's determination of your fare. Please be aware that the tap on/off credit card option is currently only valid for use on GO Transit, Brampton, MiWay, Oakville Transit, and UP Express.
Autoload allows you to automatically add money to your PRESTO card.
Kids under the age of 12 ride GO Transit for free without needing a PRESTO card.
You can get deeper discounts by selecting a fare type. PRESTO offers discounts of 40% off the full adult GO fare for riders aged 13–19 and full-time postsecondary students, and 55% off for seniors.

A PRESTO rookie Get going with it
Get your hands on a PRESTO card quickly and easily at any of these locations:

A PRESTO card purchased from a Shoppers Drug Mart, grocery store, or Transit Agency outlet may take up to 24 hours to activate before you can create a My PRESTO Account and load funds or passes online.
To add funds to your PRESTO card, you can:
- With the PRESTO app, you can add money instantly.
- Automated loading system configuration
- With the help of a PRESTO automatic teller machine
- Going to a CVS
- Checking out the PRESTO homepage
- Purchasing tickets at the counters of GO stations, GO Bus terminals, and participating ticket agencies
The following must be considered before boarding the train:
If you have a PRESTO card, you can tap on by touching it to the station's fare payment machine. Verify that a fare has been deducted from your card by checking the device's screen. If the transaction was successful, you'll hear a beep and see a checkmark appear on a green screen. See a station attendant before departing if a red screen with an X and an explanation of the problem appears.
Once you get here:
As you leave the station, tap your card on the Fare Payment Device and release the card.
When boarding the bus:
To pay your fare, tap your PRESTO card on the driver-side terminal of the bus. This machine will verify your card, log your trip's origin, and deduct the appropriate fare for the next zone along your route.
When you get off the bus:
Just before you get off the bus, tap your card on the Fare Payment Device to pay your fare. Any remaining balance from that ride will be deducted from or credited to your card via the PRESTO system.
Always end your calls by tapping the receiver. If you don't tap off, PRESTO won't know where you got off and you'll be charged for the entire length of the route.
Use a Credit Card to Tap On and Off GO Transit
You can now use any major credit card—even ones stored in your phone or watch—to pay your adult GO fare. Simply use a PRESTO device to make purchases with a tap of your card or mobile wallet. Don't forget to turn off your phone when you reach your destination.
You must use identical on-and-off tapping to pay your fare. If you use a credit card to tap in, use the same card to tap out. If you use your phone or watch to tap on, you must use the same device to tap off using the same card stored in your mobile wallet. By doing so, you can avoid accidentally paying the fare twice.
If you pay with a credit card, you can also take advantage of our GO Loyalty Discount Program. You can't combine purchases made with a physical credit card and a credit card stored in a mobile wallet to qualify for these discounts; you must use the same form of payment for each and every trip.

Frequent GO Transit riders can save money by paying with their PRESTO cards because they are eligible for discounts such as the Youth, Post-Secondary Student, and Senior discounts that are only available to those who use the PRESTO card.
Here is more information about PRESTO contactless payment, or you can go directly to the PRESTO website.
A default trip can be set on a credit card when you tap it on a PRESTO device if you routinely take the GO Train between the same two stations. If you set up a "default trip," you'll only need to tap on at the beginning of your train ride. Note that only GO Train trips are set as default, not GO Bus ones. Find out how to program your card for a regular journey.
