We've been complaining about the TTC for a good long while now, and it would appear that someone's finally hearing our calls. There have been a lot of changes in the TTC system so far, and there appear to be more to come. For now, a Toronto Star report piece this morning reports that TTC users will soon be able to use their credit and debit cards to buy fares on the subway. Can you imagine? How modern!

Mayor John Tory is set to announce more details in a press conference happening at 11:00 today. But in the meantime, as we all muddle through our commute to work this Tuesday morning, we can think about how much better our lives will be once this change is enacted. At the very least, it'll help you get over the inevitable train delays you're experiencing.

The system update will also show you the funds left on your card when you tap.

Calling all PRESTO card users: there's a new update to the card system that will show TTC drivers (and yourself, of course) everything there is to know about your PRESTO.
