The installation of the TTC’s modern fare gates with PRESTO begins this Sunday, Sept. 10, at Dundas Station, resulting in early station closures nightly and a full closure the weekend of Sept. 15-17.
The new gates, which improve customer flow and provide an unobstructed path in to and out of stations, are a key piece of the TTC’s overall modernization plan. The new gates are in place today at 44 stations and 75 entrances.
Because Dundas Station is one of the TTC’s busiest, with tighter fare lines, closing early and for the weekend is necessary to complete the construction. During these times, subway trains will pass through the station without stopping.
Dundas Station will close as follows:
- 11 p.m. nightly: Sept. 10 -14 AND Sept. 18 to mid-October
- Weekend closure: Fri., Sept. 15 at 11 p.m. until 6 a.m. Mon., Sept. 18
The full fare gate construction schedule is available at ttc.ca and a video (https://youtu.be/leJI7qjtESI) explaining the next wave of fare gate construction is posted on the TTC’s YouTube channel. Station specific fact sheets are also posted at ttc.ca. During closures, customer service ambassadors will be in place to assist customers with directions and information.
When the fare gate installation is complete next spring, every subway station and every entrance will have new gates and accept PRESTO. All TTC buses and streetcars accept PRESTO today.
