    Can Presto brings an App for its payment card? It’ll be great if they can also integrate it with the existing NFC readers

    Welp, yeah, who the heck thought that some simple moving graphics would be enough to prevent a counterfit app? Damn. Where’s the unique QR code that needs to be presented when somebody actually checks your fare? :/

      Ya, I was wondering about the same thing. Am I missing something there??

    Meanwhile, Miway is running a 6-months pilot to give almost %50 discount to already discounted Senior rides for the cash payment – it’s either $1.9 ticket or $1 cash. I suspect Metrolinx’ charges are too much to bear for the city’s budget. If I was offered the same option, I’d never bother with Presto. Although I find it super-convenient, the lack of support from TTC kills the mood.

    it’s unlikely to take the place of specialty tickets like day passes, which require manual inspection by the drivers.

    For information, OC Transpo in Ottawa (also working with Presto) allows you to buy a DayPass from funds loaded on your Presto card, directly from the bus driver. No need to buy a physical ticket/pass in advance: the bus driver will simply print out a DayPass receipt, instead of a regular transfer, to act as your PoP for the rest of the day.
