Here is the answer that you are looking for: Never.
The auto trans fluid in a Prius is what we call "World Spec", and never needs to be changed. Why? Because the Prius trans fluid is not used for hydraulic pressure or cooling the ATF fluid due to the lack of the aforementioned hydraulic pressure. All that the ATF does is perform a "lubrication" function. As long as there is no contamination of the fluid (such as being in a flood), do not bother with it.

Toyota Ed just wants some business when the trans goes out, recommended transmission fluid change at 100k then 50 k thereafter. I changed my fluid at 110,000 miles and the fluid was almost black. To assume the fluid does not experience wear in that transmission is ridiculous. Go to priuschat.com for all the info you need.

You add Transmission fluid through the dipstick tube, you will need a small funnel, you can buy one at a local auto parts store.
With the engine warm and the truck in park and running, pull out dipstick, wipe it clean, replace, then pull out and check level.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

at 50,000 miles there is really no need. i would wait and save up that money and do a transmission flush 7- 10 quarts of toyota f-type fluid can be costly but a flush removes all of the fluid and garnish along with any fine shavings (normal wear and tear) out of the tranny and replaces it with new clean fluid. normal intervals would be at about 80-100,000 miles. you should be able to find preventative maintenance schedules in your owners manual. if not any repair facility would have it on their computer.
