Bring Presto to busses
The goal of a good transit is to be affordable, frequent and easy to use, none of which are true for Barrie, despite it's size and rapid growth. While our city modernizes and grows, our transit remains antiquated, requiring now for people to buy scratch-off paper cards that easily get destroyed just from keeping in a wallet.
A presto card will allow riding to be more convenient, allowing for an automatic renewal for monthly passes (no more waiting in line at the beginning of the month) and allows for an auto-loading feature for those who infrequently travel. Barrie also benefits from this, allowing Barrie to monitor routes and see which ones excel, overcrowd or need adjustments easily with seeing how many presto taps are used on a route.
Presto is needed for Barrie to truly be seen as a modern city, as it brings convenience to taking transit. The more convenient transit becomes, the more increase to ridership will arrive. This also won't require additional training for drivers, making it easy to introduce.
