New electronic fare barriers became active on Saturday at Gare du Nord in a bid to improve the collection of MBTA commuter rail fares.

With this change, passengers now have to tap, scan or swipe their tickets to enter and exit the station. They will still have to show their tickets to the conductors on board, but there will no longer be ticket checks at the dock.

“The new gate system will allow us to better integrate the commuter rail network and ticketing system with those of other transit modes on the T,” the MBTA said.

There are now 30 gates around the Gare du Nord concourse, including nine wider and more accessible gates. Fare barriers will also be installed at South and Back Bay stations.
