TTC installing new PRESTO fare gates
at Dupont Station, starting April 27

Update — Wednesday, September 7, 2:43 p.m.: Construction has ended and passengers are using the new PRESTO-enabled fare gates at the station.

After a successful pilot project at Main Street Station, the TTC continues to install new PRESTO fare gates at more stations.

Dupont Station is next.

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.

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 aisle at the main entrance.

The TTC is assigning ambassadors to the stations to help you figure out how to get around during construction.

Phase one

During the first phase, starting Wednesday, April 27, crews are removing all of the turnstiles, installing hoarding and half of the new fare gates. You’ll have to enter the paid-area of the station through a temporary station collector lane beside the hoarding. You can still buy tickets, tokens or TTC Metropasses from the collector.

Work on phase one of the project to install new fare gates at Dupont Station continues until May 27.

Phase two

During the second phase, starting Saturday, May 28, crews are installing the remaining new fare gates. You’ll have to enter the station through the collector booth aisle or through the new fare gates, which will accept both PRESTO cards and TTC Metropasses.

Work on phase two of the project to install new fare gates at Dupont Station continues until June 10.
