Does anyone here know if TTC uses undercover fare enforcement officers?
I'm getting tired of taking free tides. Make it work already.
I've never seen a broken reader once on YRT, Viva, GO train stations, GO buses, MiWay, or HSR in the past 5 years I've been using Presto in the GTHA. Before someone inevitably chimes in otherwise, yes, I am aware that they absolutely do happen, but with the TTC I encounter broken streetcar/bus readers about as often as I do working ones (excluding LFLRVs).
This is ridiculous.
Because there's nothing in the system for the driver to program the route into the Presto device yet. That comes later, they are just working on the basic tap-on devices first.Oh man, tap the fancy electronic machine and then insert a 1920's era piece of metal. How can they possibly not be able to set up the correct fare on the Presto device?
That doesn't help those who have a pass, but need to use a token as well.Here's an alternative - either put non Presto buses on the express routes or cover the readers.
