I stopped to read the new fare dispensing machines at the Carling Station, Trillium Line.
They have an abundance of fare-acceptance mechanisms. Cash, coins, credit card readers, credit card taps, presto cards, bar-coded transfers… plus surveillance and communication cameras? monitor? keypad, fingerprints?? … is there anything they don’t take?
I do wonder a bit about the distinction between [presumably db and cr “cards” ] and “smartcard”. Is a smartcard a PrestoCard?
and, of course, the fare gates, soon not-to-be-left-open.
which, fortunately, seemed to have many fewer buttons and apps than the fare-machine.
These fare gates lead to the stairs. It appeas to me the one on the left is an “exit gate” as the reader faced away from the picture. I forgot to look for the extra wide gate or go-around, but presumably that is on the other gate set that goes to the elevator.
