UPDATED: No enthusiasm at Ryerson for possible PRESTO changes

Mayor John Tory and TTC Chair Josh Colle asked the transit agency, in an open letter, to explore the effectiveness of time-based transfers for PRESTO users.

Much like the longstanding test project on the St. Clair 512 streetcar, which ran from 2005 until September of this year, the proposed time-based transfers would allow travellers to get on and off any TTC vehicles without restrictions within the time limits set forth – likely between 90 minutes and two hours.
