Dundas is the only station in Toronto where the northbound and southbound platforms are in separate fare-paid areas, owing to the constrained space and difficult geology at this location. Separate street entrances had to be used for each direction until the Eaton Centre was built, at which time a tunnel was constructed under the tracks outside the fare-paid areas. If, by accident, a person winds up on the wrong platform, they can take the train on whichever platform they are on to the next station, either to College if on the northbound platform, or Queen if on the southbound platform, and then go to the opposite platform from there. People holding passes can simply exit the station, follow the signs to the opposite platform and enter at no extra cost.
