This week and next, Museum Station will close at 10 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday nights, Nov. 1 and 2, and Nov. 6 and 7, for fare gate construction. Closing early is necessary to complete the floor work that cannot be done when the station is open.

During the closures, subway trains will pass through the station without stopping.

The new modern, paddle-style gates are equipped with PRESTO readers and improve customer flow by providing an unobstructed path into and out of stations. They are a key element of the TTC’s modernization plans. The gates are in place today at 46 stations and 77 entrances.

Fare gate work also continues at Queen Station with the station closing (and train service bypassing) at 11 p.m. nightly until the end of November. Over the coming weeks, four other subway stations will close early or on weekends for fare gate construction. These include:

St Andrew Station: weekend closure - 10 p.m. Nov. 10 to 6 a.m. Nov. 13
College Station: early closures – 10 p.m. Nov. 14, 15, 16 and 20
Osgoode Station: weekend closure - 10 p.m. Dec. 1 until 6 a.m. Dec 4
Queen’s Park Station: early closures - 10 p.m. Dec. 6, 7, 11 and 12

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.
