Toronto to erect fence at Ferry Terminal for Pokemon Go

Toronto's Jack Layton Ferry Terminal (JLFT) is filled with PokeStops, making it a popular destination for Pokemon Go players eager to catch 'em all.

But the city thinks the area's too crowded because along with the Pokemon Trainers, about 25,000 use the ferries daily. Last week, city officials announced that they asked Pokemon Go's developer Niantic to delete the JLFT-area PokeStops.

However, after a meeting yesterday, city staff came up with another solution. As Metro News reports, the city will be putting up fencing and signage to separate Pokemon Go players from those wishing to hop on a ferry.

City staff are also connecting with the local Pokemon Go community in order to keep the JLFT litter-free. And Conscientious players have already banded together to clean up this lakeside spot.

As Metro writes, the signs might take a few weeks to arrive, but the fencing should be up within a few days.
