same vendor I think. They seem more reliable! There was some discussion further up the thread about those machines somewhere between 2010 and 2014.
I just saw this machine - two in brand new streetcar 4531. At first glance they look like the old machine, but if you look closely they don't have the Green Presto transfer tap thing. And they start with a 5350 ID number and not a 5300 ID that you usually see.
Perhaps these are the "new" machines?
I saw 2 broken 5300 machines today! And that was the only two other Flexitys I rode today! Perhaps they don't like the this week's higher TTC fares!

Those are definitely different. But what’s up with the PIN pad if there’s no debit card slot?
It really is disappointing that they’re going all in with no debit. Are the TTC people making these decisions even from Toronto? We’re heavily into electronic payments in this city. For god’s sake, my usual ice cream truck accepts tap payments.
