What is PRESTO?

PRESTO is an electronic fare payment system that helps make travelling on transit easy and convenient at a discounted fare. The more times you travel in a month, the more you save.


Buy a card, load it, and set your fare type. Discounts available for adults, youth, post-secondary students and seniors. Then create a PRESTO Account to add your card and access great benefits – including PRESTO Perks.

Save 15% or more with PRESTO

If you take the same GO trip each time you travel within a calendar month, your GO fare* will be:

Adult Fare with PRESTO - Save 15%+

Number of Trips


1 through 35

15.7% off**

36 to 40

88.3% off**

41 and more

100% off**

If you do not take the exact same trip each time you travel on GO within a calendar month, your first 35 rides on GO will be 15.7%** off the single-ride adult fare. For trips 36 and onwards, your discount will be based on the value of the trips you’ve taken that month. To earn these discounts, you’ll need to use the same form of payment for all your trips – you can’t combine payments on a PRESTO card, credit card, and debit card.

Youth & Post-Secondary Students save 40% on GO with PRESTO.

Seniors save 55% on GO with PRESTO.
