St Andrew Station closing this weekend for fare gate construction
St Andrew Station will be closing this weekend from 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10 until 6 a.m. Mon., Nov. 13 for fare gate construction. This closure is necessary to complete the floor work that cannot be done when the station is open.
During the closure, subway trains will pass through the station without stopping. Customers will need to use Osgoode or Union stations to access King St., or King Station to access the 504 or 514 Cherry streetcar routes.
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. The new gates are key to the TTC’s modernization plans. The gates are in place at 46 stations and 78 entrances today.
Over the coming weeks, College, Osgoode and Queen’s Park stations will close early or over a weekend for fare gate construction, as follows:
- College Station: early closure – at 10 p.m. on Nov. 14, 15, 16 and 20.
- Osgoode Station: weekend closure from Fri., Dec. 1 at 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. Mon., Dec. 4.
- Queen’s Park Station: early closure at 10 p.m. on 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 TTC subway station and entrance will have new gates and accept PRESTO. All TTC buses and streetcars accept PRESTO today.
