    Plus Commerce court may not want them to have the entrance open after they are closed for business.

    Good riddance to aluminium discs. What an antique.

    If you're not using Presto you're not taking advantage of the "free" return trips/stop overs :)

    As has been discussed in the Presto thread, people are being given a transfer for what would require a new fare following the actual TTC transfer rules.

    A lot of the time, living near Dundas West, I would take the subway downtown (slightly faster), then take the 505 back home (no transfer, more enjoyable ride). Because of Presto, many of those return trips have counted as a transfer, and it's been a great money-saver. I wish they'd just switch to 2-hour transfers for everyone, since many of us already have it.

    The entrance to Melinda always operates for full TTC hours so this would make no sense and I really do not understand the "too much dust' argument above - the two entrances are quite separate and reached by different stairs from the platforms.

    Agreed, I have Autoload on all 5 cards, and that doesn't mean I'm not checking the summary to spot issues.

    But frankly, I'm seeing about twice as many (if not more) free rides than extra charges - so difficult to complain too much.

    Back to the matter of fare gates - they've replaced the two presto turnstyles with one temporary terminal right by the attendant booth at Dundas southbound. Chaos, lines and flow issues predictably emerges. It's going to be a long fall...

    I got a few pictures of the southbound side today. I didn't get any of the northbound sides though.

    Ah yes, the presto on the cutting board.

    The
    There was another one mounted to a column beside a person with a portable fare box as well.
