As part of the TTC’s continuing modernization efforts the turnstiles at the main entrance and the high gates at the Commerce Court entrance to King Station will be replaced with new paddle-style fare gates.

Construction at the main entrance is scheduled to start on Sept. 15. It will take until the end of November to complete.

    • From Sept. 19-23 the station will close at 10 p.m.
    • During the early closure subway trains will not stop at the station. Customers should use Queen or Union stations to access the subway.
    • During operating hours, customers will enter the station through a temporary station collector or through the collector booth aisle.
    • A PRESTO card reader will be available beside the station collector during the construction.  

Customer service representatives will be available during the construction.
