TTC closing Osgoode Station this weekend
for PRESTO fare-gate construction

Crews continue installing new, PRESTO-enabled fare-gates at Osgoode Station this weekend.

The TTC is closing the station to passengers and trains operating along Line 1 Yonge - University must bypass the station in both directions from 10 p.m. Friday, December 1 until 5:30 a.m. Monday, December 4.

Earlier this week, the TTC starting working on the new fare-gates. This weekend, crews work on the floor — work that they cannot perform while passengers are passing through the station.

This work is part of the TTC’s final wave to install the new paddle-style fare gates in 24 stations and more than 50 entrances over the next eight months.

Osgoode is one of the five stations remaining out of 24 to receive the new fare gates during this final wave of construction. Queen’s Park, Sheppard - Yonge, Finch and Union stations are the other stations where crews will install the fare gates with PRESTO over the next five months.

According to the TTC, “The new gates, which improve customer flow and provide an unobstructed path [into] and out of stations, are a key piece of the TTC’s overall modernization plan.”
