TTC info screens warn of delays

The TTC is rolling out new screens at its station entrances to provide riders with information about subway, bus and streetcar delays before they decide to drop tokens into the slot.

The TTC is rolling out new screens at its station entrances to provide riders with information about subway, bus and streetcar delays before they decide to drop tokens into the slot.

The first of the new screens, provided at no cost by Onestop Media, was unveiled at the entrance to the Dundas West subway station Thursday.

The information will be dispatched directly from the TTC’s transit-control centre and the screens will be positioned so they’re fully visible to the subway collectors.

When there’s a major service disruption, similar to one that shut down the Yonge line last fall during rush hour, the new screens will have a full-screen override alerting passengers that they should find an alternative.

“The frustrating thing for our passengers may be that we’ve always had this information,” said TTC chair Adam Giambrone. Now, at last, riders will have it as well.
