Presto cuts wait time for card loading

There's some good news for Presto card users.

The lag time between when you load your card and the money is available to pay for your OC Transpo ride is now much shorter than the up to 48 hours it used to take.

The system is now updated 3 to 6 times per day, compared to the previous once a day. New software was installed earlier this in a bid to get down to a four hour wait time.

Councillor Diane Deans, who chairs the transit commission, said on Wednesday that while it's difficult to pinpoint exactly how long it takes, she's confident it's close to, or even less, than that amount of time.
