Streetcar in motion.

Transfers using PRESTO

If you have a PRESTO card you no longer need a paper transfer. This is because a transfer is applied to your PRESTO card when you first tap onto a card reader. The transfer for your one-way continuous journey is valid for two hours from the first time you tap your card on a reader. Stop overs are not permitted. Standard transfer rules apply.

All streetcars have PRESTO.

PLEASE NOTE: As of April 13, 2018, customers may notice new fares and transfers machines on select streetcars. At this time, these machines do not accept debit or credit cards.  Passengers travelling by streetcar should carry a PRESTO card, a token, or exact change for fare payment in the event they board a streetcar with reduced payment functionality. Transfers will also continue to be accepted.
