The TTC will be ending the sale of tickets, tokens, and passes at collector booths next month.

According to the transit commission, the sales will end on November 30, 2019, but customers will still be able to buy tickets and tokens at “some third-party retailers.”

“While customers will be able to continue using previously purchased tickets, tokens, and passes to pay their fare, those people who do not have large quantities of tickets, tokens, and passes remaining, are encouraged to move to a PRESTO card now to avoid potential line ups for cards on December 1,” stated the TTC in a release.

PRESTO cards are available for sale at Fare Vending Machines in all subway stations, all Shoppers Drug Mart locations, online, and through the PRESTO App, or at the TTC Customer Service Centre at Davisville Station.

The TTC said that PRESTO card customers have access to benefits, including paying the lowest fare by default, being able to hop on and off the TTC within a two-hour period without being charged a second fare, and the ability to use one card to pay a fare across 10 other transit agencies that use PRESTO.

At this point, the TTC has not set a date as to when it will stop accepting tickets, tokens and day passes.

“Since refunds will not be provided, customers are encouraged to use their remaining tickets, tokens, and passes as soon as they can,” they said.

The GTA Weekly Passes can be used until December 1, 2019.
