PRESTO Guide for New Users

If you are a student new to PRESTO, you will need to create a new account. It’s easy to do at prestocard.ca.

For detailed instructions, please follow the instructions below.

Students should register their card to protect the balance if it’s lost, stolen or damaged. Registration allows students to get a replacement card quickly and transfer any remaining balance (school board pass).

Please note, there is no need to ACTIVATE a School Board Issued Presto card! It has already been activated by OSTA.
