Lost or stolen cards
Report a missing card to PRESTO and have it cancelled. You will be responsible for the value spent within 24 hours of reporting the loss. You must purchase a replacement card and load a minimum of $10 on to the card. Do NOT create a My PRESTO Account for your new card. Contact PRESTO and request your My PRESTO account, any applicable card balance, valid Transit pass(es) and fare type be transferred to your replacement card.
Autoload reloads your PRESTO card automatically through your bank account or credit card when your card balance drops below a dollar amount chosen by you - the minimum amount you can choose is $5. The minimum autoload amount is $20, up to a maximum of $980.
Note: Your new balance will show up immediately on your card. The minimum and maximum amounts are subject to change by PRESTO without notice.
This feature automatically reloads a monthly pass each month. Six days before the end of each month, your method of payment is charged for the value of next month’s pass. When you tap your card as part of a regular trip, the next month’s pass is loaded to your PRESTO card.
Note: To set up Autorenew you first must have a monthly pass on your card.
