presto card

This is how the PRESTO card should actually work

Are you frustrated by TTC delays, overheated subway cars and buses (or streetcars) that never seem to arrive on time? If you live in Toronto, your answer is probably a hard yes. And the creator of a new satirical YouTube video seems to know how you feel.

In YouTuber sweetsingin's latest video, he introduces Toronto to the Prestissimo card, "which automatically adjusts your transit fare in Toronto based on poor-quality service."

With this newly imagined card, riders would a reduced fair (or even money back) if their train/bus/streetcar was late or lacked basic amenities, like air conditioning on a hot day.

"What if we gave a damn, and actually tried to get you to the places you need to go, quickly, reliably, and affordably?" asks the video.
