TTC installing PRESTO fare gates
at Queen Station, starting October 18

The TTC continues to install new PRESTO fare gates at more stations.

Queen Station is next.

Starting Wednesday, October 18, TTC crews are removing turnstiles and high gates and replacing them with new, PRESTO-enabled, paddle-style fare gates. The new gates provide easier access and improve the flow of passengers into and out of stations.

The TTC is closing the collector booth at the north entrance (Albert Street) October 18. You have to buy tickets, tokens and passes at the south entrance (Queen Street), while the north entrance is closed.

The TTC is closing the station to passengers from Wednesday, October 18 and Thursday, October 19 at 11 p.m. each night. It’s closing the station after 11 p.m. Friday, October 20 and all day Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22. The station reopens to passengers 5:30 a.m. Monday, October 23. The TTC again closes the station after 11 p.m. each evening from Monday “until the end of November”, or until November 30.

Whenever the TTC closes the station early or for the entire weekend, trains operating along the 1 Yonge - University line do not stop in the station. You must walk to Dundas or King stations to board the trains.

During construction, you can only enter the station through a temporary fare-collector aisle. The TTC is setting up a temporary PRESTO-card reader beside the fare collector.

The TTC is also assigning customer-service representatives to help guide you during construction.
