    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    I don’t know the answers to your questions, but next time you’re near an old PRESTO reader, hold your iPhone up to it.

    Orangeville-Brampton Railway (OBRY)

    I think the reason that the bluster about the railway closing died down was for sure industry related. It was made clear that the presence of a railway in Orangeville was absolutely needed for the industry to be retained. Now, I just hope that the "railway will stay open" message is announced...
