Why are all the "facts" about the presto card not disclosed by the media?

@dandmb50 - Since the media will not give us ALL the facts I will disclose some interesting facts.

Presto

I was at Queens Park subway station yesterday and with all the talk about these presto cards I noticed one of the "tap Machines" at the payment booth. I waited a while and one person used the presto card. It flashed on the screen that it cost him $2.19 for his fare. I went to presto site (https://www.prestocard.ca/) and it costs $6.00 to purchase and you must load min $10. It currently works on Go transit and some systems and some TTC stations. I have read a lot about presto but never heard about these facts? Why is the media not mentioning this? Give us all the "facts" I think it will be a good idea. Think of the money the TTC will save from counting the money/tickets etc. Think of the employees that will be fired?

I actually think it's a great idea just wonder why the media is not telling us all the facts.
