Transit It will be Nov. 30 before the hoods come off the new Presto card readers that recently appeared at Union Station.

That’s when the next phase of the new regional fare-card system will launch for about 500 commuters who board GO Transit at Oakville and Bronte.

The reloadable Presto smart-card, which will eventually allow riders to use a single fare card across nine GTA transit systems, was tested in Mississauga more than a year ago. The expanded program gives riders the ability to reload the card online, by phone or in person.

Twenty-seven card readers will operate at Oak­ville, Bronte and Union stations. Readers will also be added to 10 Oakville buses and at two TTC turnstiles at Union.

Commuters who want to participate will be able to apply in coming weeks, when Presto representatives will be on GO platforms providing information.
