Presto location in Ward 9

Key points below about the enhanced Presto services:

  • OC Transpo customers will be able to purchase monthly passes, load funds, check their balance, and set age-based discounts on their Presto cards instantly at 66 Shoppers Drug Mart, Loblaws and Real Canadian Superstore locations across the city.
  • The retail locations are currently being rolled out in a phased approach. All 66 locations are planned to have Presto services by the end of May 2018.
  • There will be a total of 51 Shoppers Drug Mart locations, 12 Loblaws locations and three Superstore locations.
  • The addition of these 66 new retail locations will mean easier and more convenient access to transit fare products.
  • When new Presto cards are purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart, Loblaws and Real Canadian Superstore locations, they will be black cards. The new cards work exactly the same way as the current green cards do.
  • When customers load a monthly pass or put funds on their Presto card at one of the retailer locations, the balance will be available immediately.
  • First-time Community Pass and EquiPass customers must have their discounts set at one of the four OC Transpo Customer Service Centres. Once set, these customers can then load a monthly pass or funds at any of the locations across Ottawa or online.
