Where is that video? Link?

lol, Wellesley station is definitely one of the least utilized during rush hour. Many northbound trains at Wellesley are completely full during rush hour, so you will be waiting forever to actually get on a train. I guess they know that many riders at Wellesley would rather walk up to Bloor instead.
caution: there is condo construction to the right of the station with mack trcuks in and out and active bus lane and laneway to the left .. please be careful if lines are out on the street.. it was safer on College imo... Loblaws probably didnt want any crowds in front of their store.. LOL

GO Transit doesn't really have a paid area since it's a POP system where they only check your proof of payment on trains or when you board / disembark a bus. In any case, last time at Scarborough GO the line started on the north east side of the station building and ran parallel to the tracks along the station walkway with the line end on the south west side of station.

At most stations, the Presto readers are located on your way onto the platform since there's only a few entrances with chain link fencing between them. Union is a different story, normally I tap right before I go up to the platform which helps me to avoid forgetting.

It was reasonable last time, although my gut feeling is that it'll be busier today (although it's colder and the photos of the crowds were posted after last time's distribution). They had cards for half an hour after 4, so it was all good last time. The queues were well organized and it's a safe setup since it's not an enclosed space and it's along a sidewalk.

Scarborough GO is a tough one for parking, a lot of people last week had issue finding parking. Your best bet will be to arrive right before the eastbound trains arrive and then snag a spot from someone leaving. Eastbound trains arrive at Scarborough GO around 1525-1530 hrs and 1555-1600 hrs.
