Metrolinx is pleased to share the latest milestone in making it more convenient to choose transit by offering customers more options to pay their fare. Starting November 14, 2023, customers can tap a digital version of their PRESTO card in Google Wallet, whether on an Android smartphone or Wear OS smartwatch.
Customers using PRESTO in Google Wallet can enjoy new card features such as loading funds instantly from anywhere and setting up multiple fare types if they qualify for discounts. There is a $0 issuance fee for PRESTO in Google Wallet.
PRESTO in Google Wallet will be available for customers to tap on GO Transit, UP Express, Brampton Transit, Burlington Transit, Durham Region Transit, Hamilton Street Railway, MiWay (in Mississauga), Oakville Transit, TTC, and York Region Transit. We are working to add support for additional mobile platforms in the future and will reach out to you as soon as we have more information to share.
