New PRESTO fare gates are being installed at stations across the TTC from now until mid-2017. See below for active PRESTO construction projects at TTC subway stations - organized alphabetically.

Details about new fare gates

  • Turnstiles will be removed and replaced with new, PRESTO-enabled fare gates.
  • The new gates will provide easier access and offer greater flexibility for flow of traffic into and out of stations.
  • Customers may also use cash, tickets, tokens and Metropasses, however, anyone paying by cash, tickets or tokens, must enter through the collector booth aisle at the main entrance.
  • Station ambassadors will be available to help direct customers into stations throughout construction.
