BURLINGTON, ON

 

Starting March 1, 2023, kids 12 and under will still ride free simply by tapping their PRESTO card or taking Burlington Transit with their parent or guardian.

This change will allow older children who travel on their own to be able to keep using Burlington Transit for free. After March 1, Burlington Transit bus drivers will ask all passengers to tap their PRESTO card as they board.

Pick up a free kids’ Presto card at the Downtown Transit Terminal, 430 John St.

The Presto Card has evolved – few realize just how much the service costs the city

This February, Burlington Transit is giving away 1,000 kids’ PRESTO cards!

Pick up a free kids’ Presto card at the Downtown Transit Terminal, 430 John St., and at various locations in the community.

Follow Burlington Transit on Twitter for PRESTO card giveaway location details. Please bring proof of age, such as a birth certificate, to get a free kids’ PRESTO card.

Have a PRESTO card and turning 13 soon?
Please change your PRESTO card from a kids’ card to a youth card so you are not charged the adult fare.
