Once you get your card, create a My PRESTO Account for added benefits.

Creating a My PRESTO Account protects your balance if your card is ever lost, stolen, or needs to be replaced for any reason. You can also view your transaction history, get a Transit Usage Report to calculate your Public Transit Tax Credit and set up automatic reloads on your card – so you never run out of money to pay your transit fare

*Please note: individual Gateway Newstands locations determine and set the fees they may charge for any credit and debit transactions.
