Tap to pay by credit card to load your Presto card is coming to Oshawa GO station

It’ll be easier to pay - a ticket vending machine upgrade is underway!

Oshawa GO Customers: On Friday, March 16, we'll be working on the ticket vending machine near the platform entrance. Within a few days, you'll be able to tap your debit or credit card to pay, making it easier for you.

During this time, load your PRESTO card online at or visit a PRESTO customer service outlet. You can also use another ticket vending machine at your station or visit a GO ticket booth to buy your ticket or load your PRESTO card.

Thank you for your patience while we upgrade this ticket vending machine.

This all sounds incredibly redundant. 

One day, Blue Jay/Maple Leafs/TFC/Concert fans will be able to slap a credit card or their phone against a card reader and hop on. No tickets. No PRESTO. Just full fare.

PRESTO just ensures the work crowd gets a discount.
