8 Places Your Presto Card Can Score You A Discount
If you live in the city, chances are, you own a Presto Card.
Since the inception of the magical little transportation card that helps residents of the GTA get from point A to point B, it’s had its fair share of ups, downs, and…technical difficulties. But, with the extinction of the Metropass come end of 2018, it’s safe to say that the Presto Card is here to stay. Monthly Presto passes are available now and $12.25 cheaper than its original counterpart.
Monthly savings on TTC rides aren’t the only perk Presto has up its sleeves though. You can also get unique discounts at a variety of events, museums, and activities. So, round up your Presto Card-holding friends and make your way through this list:
The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM)
There’s nothing like roaming around the ROM — you could literally spend hours there. It is Canada’s largest museum of art, culture, and nature after all. With Presto, card holders are able to get 20% off regular admission rates, all you have to do is flash your card! Just keep in mind that the discount can’t be combined with any other promotions and only applies to tickets bought on-site. Visit the ROM’s website for more details about tickets and hours.
Ripley’s Aquarium Of Canada
If you haven’t been to Ripley’s Aquarium Of Canada, now’s the perfect opportunity! And if you have, this gives you even more reason to go back.

It’s a fun place to be with family, friends, or even a date! As an added bonus, Presto Card holders will also get 20% off at the Cargo Hold Gift Shop so that you can pick up a memento of your trip to the aquarium forever.
