Frequently asked questions

Why can’t I pay both fares with my PRESTO card on a Downtown Express bus?

The PRESTO card readers need to be programed to deduct multiple fares at one time, and there is some complexity to adding that capability. As we work on introducing that feature, you can pay one of the double fares using your PRESTO card, but you need to pay the other fare by ticket, token or exact cash.

Will I ever be able to purchase a monthly pass + downtown express option on PRESTO?

Yes, however the timing for when this fare option will be available is still being determined. The PRESTO card readers need to be programed to deduct multiple fares at one time, and there is some complexity to adding that capability. More information will be shared when it is available.

How much does the Downtown Express bus sticker cost?

The sticker costs $43 and is available at every Collector Booth. Stickers are available for sale from the last eight day of the month until five days after the start of the next month.

Is there a specific spot on my PRESTO card where I should put the Downtown Express bus sticker?

Your sticker should be placed on the bottom left hand corner of your PRESTO card.

What happens if can’t get last month’s sticker off my card?

If you are unable to peel last month’s sticker off your card, you should place your new sticker on top of the old one and show that to the operator each time you board a Downtown Express bus.

Will the sticker damage my PRESTO card?

No it shouldn’t. However if you are experiencing issues with your PRESTO card visit a PRESTO Customer Service outlet to have your card examined.

What happens if I don’t have a Downtown Express bus sticker?

That’s ok. You can pay your first fare using your PRESTO card and the second fare by ticket, token or exact cash.
