A proposed 10-year deal hammered out with Metrolinx will see the City of Ottawa keep the Presto transit fare card until 2027 but also pay a larger fee to the provincial Crown agency behind the system.

The City of Ottawa has been paying two per cent of the cost of each Presto transaction to Metrolinx, a deal that had been set to expire in October before the city negotiated two one-month extensions.
