DRT offers "free" PRESTO cards,
starting September 25



Durham Region Transit will soon phase out monthly passes for its passengers.

That’s why DRT is offering its passengers the opportunity to pick up “free” PRESTO farecards at many of its sales outlets, starting Thursday, September 25, while supplies last.

Technically, the cards aren’t free — you need to transfer money into your PRESTO account to use them. However, DRT will waive the usual $6 fee to register the cards, starting Thursday.

Also, DRT staff will visit sales locations at public libraries in Ajax, Brock, Clarington, Oshawa, Pickering, Scugog, Uxbridge and Whitby in October and November. You’ll be able to pick up and register the free cards during library operating hours. DRT staff will be on hand to help you register their cards and answer questions.

The events take place:
