Have you made the switch to Presto? Shoppers Drug Mart has now started selling Presto cards!

Presto is an electronic payment system that eliminates the need for tickets, tokens, passes and cash. Presto works across local transit in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) and Ottawa, making paying for your trip simple, convenient and secure.

You can now buy and top up your Preso card at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations! This includes 10 Shoppers Drug Mart locations in Toronto.

Previously, the main purchase points for the Presto fare cards was at GO or UP express stations, online or at certain Gateway Newsstands inside the subway, but not at TTC-staffed booths in stations.
