Presto monthly passes on Para Transpo

Para Transpo customers can provide their Presto card number to Para Transpo and our system will confirm to the operator that the pass is loaded. Once your card has been provided to Para Transpo, show your card to the operator for verification when boarding. This process will shorten boarding times for customers using a Presto monthly pass to pay on Para Transpo.

Follow these steps to use Presto as a pass:

  1. Contact Para Transpo to provide your Presto card number by:
  2. Allow 48 hours for your first trip for Para Transpo to verify that you have a monthly pass.
  3. Remember to bring your Presto card on your trip to show the operator or taxi driver.
  4. Next month, load your monthly pass and it will be recorded automatically.

If you have not provided your Presto card number to Para Transpo, you will need to carry a receipt as proof of payment.

Presto monthly passes not registered with Para Transpo

Monthly passes loaded to a Presto card that has not been provided to Para Transpo require proof of payment. You will need to show the operator a receipt proving that your monthly pass has been loaded and paid for when you board.
