Now Purchase and Reload Presto Card at City Hall and in Dundas

Did you know that you can now obtain a $20.00 pre-loaded Adult PRESTO card from the Dundas Municipal Service Centre and / or Hamilton City Hall, as well as re-load e-purse and Month Passes, check PRESTO balances, and settle PRESTO overdrafts?

No? Neither did I.

The change is now listed on the fares & conditions page of the HSR website, but this isn't mentioned in either the Winter or Spring Bus News pamplets, nor is it in the "2013 Special Edition - Fare Changes" edition which was released just prior to the new year with the delay of the new fare structure.

Hours of Operation:

Dundas Municipal Service Centre
Monday – Friday from 8:30am – 4:30pm.

Hamilton City Hall
Monday – Friday from 8:30am – 4:30pm.

The Manager for Fare & Revenue stated that the equipment which was installed in City Hall and in Dundas were part of a pilot. "We have installed equipment in these locations on a pilot basis. We expect the pilot to be complete by early summer, at which time we will determine our ability to expand to the other Municipal Centres."
