TTC collector booths are slowly being phased out. The plan has been in the works for awhile, but yesterday the Toronto Transit Commission announced the booths at Sheppard West and Wilson stations were now closed permanently.
“Customer service agents” are now in place at those stations, as well as at all six new stations on Toronto’s York Spadina Subway Extension, to answer questions and sell PRESTO cards.
They also said that by the end of 2018, people will no longer be able to purchase tickets, tokens or Metropasses at Line 1 subway stations. Instead, PRESTO cards will be the standard way to pay.
