If you travel between the same two GO Train stations consistently, you can have a default trip set for your PRESTO card. A default trip means you only tap on at the beginning of your train trip and you don’t need to tap off at the end of your train trip.
Default trips can only be set in-person and only for GO Train trips, not for GO Bus trips.
To set your default train trip in-person, visit a GO Station Attendant or a participating GO ticket agency.
