Introducing PRESTO contactless

Posted on Monday, January 23, 2023 02:00 PM

No cash? No problem. You now have more ways to pay when you use transit in Burlington and across the GHTA!

PRESTO contactless is an easy way to pay and get on the bus. You can use your credit card to pay your Burlington Transit fare, including cards on your phone or watch. Simply tap your card, phone or watch on a PRESTO machine when you get on the Burlington Transit bus. You can also use PRESTO contactless on Brampton Transit, Durham Region Transit (DRT), GO Transit, Hamilton Street Railway (HSR), MiWay, Oakville Transit and York Region Transit (YRT).

When you use PRESTO contactless, the fare you pay is the same as our cash fare.

Most major credit cards, such as Visa, Mastercard and American Express, are accepted. When tapping a phone or watch, please select the payment card you’d like to pay with in your mobile wallet. For some phones and watches, you may need to unlock your device before tapping.

For more information, please visit our PRESTO contactless page.
