Thanks for sharing. I know TTC is the last two remaining transit agencies with PNG (Presto Next Generation) that was supposed to handle open payments. Other one is OC Transpo in Ottawa, Ontario which they are replacing with their own version with similar features.

What a waste of money if they have to replace all the readers within 7-8 years. ML should have done it right the first time since open payment did exist back in 2015.

I guess it's okay since it's like a midlife refresh for the buses.

Those readers have been replaced more than once (at least) due to wear and tear anyway, and so would have open payment readers had they been installed then, too. It’s an ongoing regimen and expense.

Don’t think for a second that the ones they’re removing now are the very same units they threw on in 2015.

Now that you made it clear. Then is this replacement in line with the industry standard or ML designed something really bad.

Then again, if you consider this as a bus part that gets replaced every couple of years then it's not really that surprising.

From the September CEO report:

At the start of September, TTC customers were informed that PRESTO is replacing card readers on Wheel-Trans buses and contracted accessible minivans. The installation is scheduled for completion in November. Starting next month, the replacement of card readers will begin on TTC buses and streetcars, which is expected to continue until December.
