Glitches in the new Presto transit cards…
… are forcing OC Transpo to delay the handout of the cards by at least 10 days to do some more testing.
To me, this is good news. Hopefully there will be even more glitches and I’ll be able to use my EcoPass a little bit longer.
“The Family and Friends pilot is designed to assist Metrolinx in identifying critical technical issues so that they can be fixed before our customers begin using the system in large numbers,” said transit commission chair Diane Deans in a memo.
“The pilot is working as planned and the problems with this new-generation Presto system are being identified and addressed. However, we have heard from Presto that more needs to be done and therefore the launch will be delayed.”
