A subway entrance normally leads into a ticket hall where there are
machines to buy tickets, the barriers and then the lift and/or stairs
are beyond those.

Unless you are going to start indoor mapping the barriers then
stairs=yes/no, lift=yes/no make perfect sense on the entrance. 

Entrances also need opening hours, some are not open at weekends or
late in the evening.
