PRESTO card coming to Apple wallets soon

By Dilshad Burman

Six months after Android users were given the ability to add PRESTO cards to their Google Wallets, Metrolinx announced Thursday that Apple users will soon be able to do the same.

This means PRESTO cards can be added to Apple Wallets and an iPhone or Apple Watch can be used to tap on and off transit.

CityNews reached out to Metrolinx for a timeline for the rollout but no further details were made available except for “stay tuned!”

Comments on social media hailed the move as a long time coming.

Earlier this year, another improvement to PRESTO was implemented with the ‘one-fare’ program, allowing riders to pay a single PRESTO fare as they transfer between the TTC and other GTA transit agencies including GO Transit, Brampton Transit, Durham Region Transit, MiWay and York Region Transit.
