for the Designated Waiting Area, a well-lit area of all subway
platforms on the TTC
. The area is furnished with extra bench
, closed-circuit cameras
and an intercom
so that patrons waiting for trains are not so isolated
from transit staff.
DWAs are located in the same place in every subway station
as the conductor's car stops within that area. This makes it a convenient
place to meet friends
when taking the subway
If everyone is punctual
, anyone waiting on the platform can just jump on the train once their friends arrive.
