Commuters won’t be able to load their Presto cards online or by phone this holiday weekend.
Metrolinx, the company behind the Presto payment card system for Ottawa and Toronto transit systems, has shut down its website for an upgrade. The site is expected to be back online by early Tuesday morning.
Transit users can still use the card to pay their fare and buy and load cards at Presto customer service outlets. To find a location, visit www.octranspo.com. The auto-load function will continue to work.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/presto-website-down-over-thanksgiving-weekend
