More than likely not. There have been a few instances where vehicles have been stuck under gates at some crossings while the LRV is approaching.

yeah that seems a lot more likely lol

That’s nothing. Take a look at the page for Toronto’s new streetcars:

My son noticed that the fare box machines at Central Station and Allen are operating in the sense that you can tap the menu options etc.

Sorry mt camera was out of power so no pictures.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

You mean the TVM’s (Ticket Vending Machines) on the platforms?

There's a fellow on the Facebook group who's part of an engineering team working on the fare system; they're currently running the equipment through its paces.

Yes. They were operating. We were able to validate both of our EasyGo card balances and probably could have done a few other basic operations too (I think even paid a fare to ride GRT, but we did not try that).

I tried to load my monthly pass at one but it would not accept any of my bank cards

I went and visited the train again today. It was #511 that was being shown off, which has the FIE working. The operator mentioned that they had gotten a recent software upgrade too. I think he said that it helped with false alarms they were getting pre-upgrade.

Also, the EasyGo people said that we would expect an end-of-year launch for the fare cards.

Heh, I asked the GRT folks about EasyGo as well, but they wouldn't give me a specific answer....that is rather interesting.

I just watched the ctv report today (with a bunch of incorrect info) and they stated that 514 and 501 should be here next week. Hopefully that statement is correct.
