TTC: ”The Great Test Tragedy Is Not The Brutality Of The Evil People, But Rather The Silence Of The Good People.”
The verbal abuse, fines and unjustifiable beatings
against some commuters for part of the security personal from the TTC and the
police could be resolved by educating the general public how to use the presto
machine. Because proper instructions are
not provided by the Toronto Transit Commission, seniors, individuals which English
is not the first language, and others people are struggling for the assistance of
the pass byers.
All legacy and new TTC streetcars have PRESTO available. If
you primarily travel by streetcar then PRESTO is right for you.
The PRESTO electronic fare payment
system is rolling out across the TTC. It is one piece of the TTC’s
modernization efforts. All new and legacy streetcars, 30 subway stations and
some TTC buses have PRESTO. By the end of 2016, PRESTO will be installed at all
subway stations, and rolled out on all buses, including Wheel-Trans. During the
transition you should carry tickets, tokens or cash, in case your streetcar,
subway station or bus does not yet have PRESTO.
