The latest issue with Presto on the TTC involves the card readers. The TTC concedes that too many presto readers are failing (Toronto Star). At first the TTC said less than 1% are not working, though an audit that was conducted shows that, in fact, 5-6% do not work, and the number could be higher. Why is this happening? What about all the other issues with Presto?
Anne Marie Aikins, Senior Media Manager & Spokesperson of Metrolinx, joined the show to discuss. Toronto Transit Advocate Steve Munro then responded to our conversation.
What are your thoughts on the roll-out of the Presto system? Are you having Presto problems?
