New Adult TTC 12 Month Pass Coming to Presto for June Pass Period

NEW ADULT TTC 12 MONTH PASS COMING TO PRESTO FOR JUNE PASS PERIOD

A new adult 12 Month Pass will be introduced on PRESTO starting with the June pass period. The 12 Month Pass is the equivalent of the TTC’s Metropass Discount Plan (MDP), which is expected to end as of December 31, 2018. The adult 12 Month Pass will cost the same ($134.00 per month), provide the same unlimited travel on all regular TTC routes and require the same 12-month commitment as the MDP pass. A senior/youth option will be available on PRESTO later this summer.

Existing adult MDP customers who would like to switch from MDP to the 12 Month Pass on PRESTO must cancel their MDP contract and sign a new contract with PRESTO. They will not incur cancellation fees. All existing MDP contracts are expected to end as of December 31, 2018.

The 12 Month Pass will be available for sale online only at prestocard.ca from May 24 until June 5, for the June pass period. Subsequent 12 Month Pass contracts will be available for sale eight days before the end of the month until five days after the start of the next month.

To purchase the 12 Month Pass, customers must:

  • Have a PRESTO card. Cards can be purchased online at prestocard.ca, at Gateway Newstands in TTC subway stations, at PRESTO Fare Vending Machines in select subway stations, or at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations.
  • Create a My PRESTO Account at prestcard.ca.
  • Purchase a 12 Month Pass at prestocard.ca.
