I do if the machine is working, but lots of reasons not to.
Surely there's always risk pulling the card out of wherever, that you'll drop something, etc. Often my hands are full ... I can well see why may will opt not to do so now it's optional.
And it's not like replacing a card you drop or lose accidentally is as hassle-free as Metrolinx says. From having to go somewhere and buy a new one, to waiting 24 hours for the block to take effect, to only then getting to re-register your card and then wait for the system to catch up and restore your pass. God help you if it's on one of the 95% of weekends where the PRESTO website is down 48 hours for maintenance.
