SUMMER FARE COLLECTION PROCEDURES ON THE 510 HARBOURFRONT LINE

The “Pay As You Leave / Free Ride” fare collection procedure will be used again this summer on the 510 HARBOURFRONT streetcar line to help provide more efficient service. On weekends and holidays, starting May 18, no fares will be collected on the streetcars and no transfers will be issued. After leaving the streetcar at Union Station, your fare will be collected as you enter the subway. This lets us load the streetcars at all stops by both the front and centre doors, speeding up service. As an added bonus, you can travel FREE between Queens Quay Station and Spadina & Queens Quay while visiting Harbourfront and other waterfront attractions.

You have to deposit the appropriate ticket, token or exact cash fare, or have a valid pass or transfer, after you leave the streetcar to enter the subway at Union Station, or when boarding other TTC services. Streetcar and bus drivers, and the fare collectors at the streetcar loop at Union Station do not sell fares or make change.

This fare collection procedure will be in effect weekends and holidays from May 18 until Labour Day.
