Now there’s more ways to pay with PRESTO — customers can hop on transit with a simple tap of a credit card

Sponsored content Sep 20, 2022 Metroland Media

Metrolinx is bringing even more fare payment options to customers on Brampton Transit, GO Transit, MiWay and Oakville Transit*.

PRESTO contactless payment allows customers to pay their fare on participating transit agencies with just a tap of their credit card, including credit cards on a phone or watch. For Brampton Transit, MiWay and Oakville Transit, the fare charged will be the same as a $4 cash fare. On GO Transit, the fare charged will be the same of an adult PRESTO card fare.

The introduction of this new credit payment option follows a successful pilot on UP Express where riders can tap on and off with a credit or debit card, including cards on their phone or watch. And before you ask, yes, PRESTO does have plans to roll out more credit and debit payment options to other transit agencies in the future. Until then, if you’re transferring to a transit agency that doesn’t accept credit cards, you will need to pay with another accepted form of payment.

Key things you need to know about contactless payment:

Take your card out of your wallet to tap on

The PRESTO devices on Brampton Transit, GO Transit, MiWay and Oakville Transit can accept both PRESTO cards and credit cards*, including cards on your phone and watch — so tap only the card you want to use to pay your fare. To make sure the PRESTO device reads the correct card, it’s important to take the card you want to pay with out of your wallet, purse or phone case and then tap only that card onto a PRESTO device. Taking your card out to tap ensures you pay with the right card.

On GO Transit, use the same payment method to tap on and off

When travelling on GO Transit, customers must remember to tap on and off at their destination, with the same card, phone or watch they used to tap on at the start of their trip. This avoids any possible duplication of fare payment — no one likes to pay twice for one trip!

If you tried tapping on with a credit card and the PRESTO device indicates the payment was not accepted, try adding your credit card to the mobile wallet on your phone or watch to pay. If you’re still having trouble, please check with your bank to ensure your credit card is ready for use on transit.

Transferring to and from other transit agencies

Credit card payment is still rolling out across the GTHA. If transferring to a transit agency that doesn’t accept credit card payment, you will need to pay with another accepted form of payment. Brampton Transit, GO Transit, MiWay and Oakville Transit* now have contactless payment with a credit card or one that is stored on your phone or watch.
