The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) last week stopped selling tickets, tokens and day passes at its train stations as part of a transition to the Presto reloadable fare card.

The Presto cards offer automatic renewal and reloading and the ability to pay fares across 10 other transit agencies that use the system, including GO Transit and the TTC streetcar.

TTC has not set a date for when it will stop accepting tickets and tokens, but it intends to, TTC officials said in a press release. Currently, riders are still able to use previously purchased tickets and tokens.
