I actually need one, would've been great to get one instead of people taking extras.

Apparently wearing a Raptors hat got you priority in the line ...

Pfft, had they TOLD ANYONE!
I wore my CNY raptors shirt today, would that have helped? :razz:

Drove by don mills station at 3:40 and saw the line up along Sheppard and said nopeeeeee, not doing the hoard todai and kept driving on.

Getting too old to do dah hoards.

Lineup is at Church Street for Wellesley station Presto card pickup. 4:19pm.
I got there at 6 PM and asked the agent inside the ticket booth about the giveaway. She said it was done at 4 PM, which sounded ridiculous given that the start time was scheduled for then. I doubt they gave out 1000 that fast. She was pretty annoyed with the whole promotion and let me know outright that it had nothing to do with them at the booth.

I was there at around 4.40pm and there was just a sign saying that this station has run out of cards.

Last time I was able to get one at around 4.30pm, and also I read over rfd that ppl were able to get cards at around 5 pm also with no line up.

Guess either they had less cards to give out this time, or more ppl lined up this time... or both
Last time was at Don Mill exit closest to Fairview Mall but they only gave out 200 before they stopped - line up was meandering through Fairview Mall parking lot - liability issue. They say “No More Cards” but gave the rest out in paid-fare area.

This time they use Don Mill exit south of Sheppard where people line up onto sidewalk area - safer for everyone.

I was gone by 4:30 and got a card but they ran out just after.

I got mine at 4:30ish and I was around the 400th person

As seen in my attached image, the line went from underground to the surface with lines extending all the way to private property

Anyone having issues setting up auto-reload?

I've registered the card and we started using it. Now it says:

Registration of your card is in progress.To complete your registration, tap your card against any PRESTO device within 30 days.

It's like a vicious loop I'm in now. There's no more money left on the card to ride, yet I can't load it up (according to this message) until I ride.

You can tap it on a balance checker or reload machine to propagate configuration changes.
Also, while registration is pending, you can still add fund the card.

Card has to be registered and not used for 24 hours after registration. Now I have to tap it again

Yeah, Live Chat just suggested I tap the card again at this point and then I think it will allow me to setup the card. Thanks for the info

It takes about a week. Just keep tapping it on those balance checkers at the stations everyday.

I did a tap it on a balance checker and after more than one day PRESTO still shows "Registration of your card is in progress.To complete your registration, tap your card against any PRESTO device within 30 days." and does not allow to set up Autoload.

Any other ideas?

Do I actually have to add funds? or is setting up autoload enough?
