The lineups for free PRESTO cards in Toronto are already out of control (PHOTOS)

To celebrate the inaugural season at the recently renamed Air Canada Centre, Scotiabank announced it would be giving away 10,000 free, pre-loaded PRESTO cards.

At 4 pm on Wednesday afternoon, the cards are being handed out at select TTC and GO stations, and considering the cards only have $6 (and $8 for GO) pre-loaded on them, you would assume the lineups would have been fairly tame.

Well, it’s safe to say Toronto collectively lost its mind over the giveaway, as lineups at participating stations are already out of control, with some lineups so long people are now lined up outside of the station on the sidewalk.

If you were considering picking up a card for yourself, check out in the insane lineups below.

And if you missed it today, don’t worry.

Next week, they will be giving away another 10,000 PRESTO cards on October 17 before the Toronto Raptors home opener.
