Bus clipartWhen you ride a city bus in the future, you will pay with a PRESTO smart card.  How will it work? Will PRESTO be accessible for people living on low-income? For people with disabilities? 
Following a CAWI deputation and many messages sent to Council, City Council approved a motion this week that “OC Transpo work with community agencies to determine how the PRESTO system will be accessible to people on low-income”.

At this Women’s Action Forum, OC Transpo will be present to discuss and explore the alternatives with us.  Come contribute your input.

Resource Person: Sharon Thompson, Strategic Support Coordinator, OC Transpo
Let’s help make sure the city’s new PRESTO card is accessible to everyone.
