PRESTO transit pay digital Burlington

A new electronic option has been introduced that will allow you to pay your fare on Burlington Transit.

The digital version of the PRESTO payment card is now available for Google Wallet, on an Android smartphone or Wear OS smartwatch.

With these new options, you will be able to load funds on your card instantly. You can also convert your existing PRESTO card to a digital card in your Google Wallet. You’ll still need to visit us at the Downtown Transit Terminal, 430 John St., to load your U-Pass add-on or SPLIT pass.

Once you convert to PRESTO in Google Wallet, your physical PRESTO card will be cancelled and most details will be carried over, including fare type, balance, products, card settings, autoload/autorenew contracts and loyalty points.
