In 2017, student tickets and tokens will no longer be sold. Instead, everyone will use PRESTO to get around the city whether it be to school every morning, to our afternoon after-school class, or to meet our friends. For many, that’s exciting: PRESTO is easy and convenient. No longer will you have to wait in line to buy more tokens or tickets, with a simple tap you can rush your way through the turnstiles and get to the platform just in time. But for many, PRESTO is inaccessible. Since earlier this year, we’ve been working with our members to consolidate different ways we can make the TTC more youth-friendly, accessible, and equitable. Here are some of our recommendations.
