Canada Post labour disruption could delay mail delivery Read More

Rotating strikes have begun at Canada Post. This could delay delivery of Presto cards ordered online or by phone. It may take longer to receive notification letters for the EquiPass. In this case, if you buy an adult monthly pass before you receive your letter of approval, we will credit the discounted amount to your Presto card when you set your discount. Para Transpo application documents may also take longer to send and receive.

Rotating strikes have begun at Canada Post. This could delay delivery of Presto cards ordered online or by phone. Go to prestocard.ca for more details.
To avoid delivery delays, buy your card:
