TTC crews are removing turnstiles and high gates and replacing them with new, PRESTO-enabled fare gates. The new gates provide easier access and improve the flow of passengers into and out of stations.
During construction, you can only access the station at the collector booth aisle at the main entrance.
After the new fare gates are active, you can still use tickets, tokens and Metropasses to pay your fare when you enter the station — but only at the collector booth.
The TTC is assigning ambassadors to the stations to help you figure out how to get around during construction. It will also install way-finding signs.
