We're Transforming Your Station!
Major improvements are underway at Agincourt GO Station. We're updating amenities, enhancing accessibility and making it easier and more convenient to access GO services.
Pedestrian Access – Dowry Street/Sheppard Avenue:
- Beginning Wednesday, December 23, there will be temporary changes to how you access Agincourt Station. These access changes are required to accommodate ongoing construction activities for the new GO Station.
- The construction zone adjacent to the station building will be extended west to include a portion of the central parking lot. A temporary pedestrian pathway and crossing will be setup from the Dowry Street entry to the existing GO Station building and platform. A pedestrian pathway and crossing will also be setup to connect pedestrians from Dowry Street to the Sheppard Avenue East entry.
- Construction signage will be in place for pedestrians to access the GO Station and these temporary pedestrian pathways.
- For your safety, please use caution when travelling around construction zones and follow all posted signs. Click here to learn more about construction at your station.
New Train Platform:
- A temporary south platform is open and available for you to use. The north platform and north walkway are closed for construction.
- Entrances will safely lead you to your new platform – one will be near the station building and another farther south, will give you direct access to the platform from the parking lot.
- Not all doors on your train will open at Agincourt. If you’re unsure, please look at your station’s boarding infographic or ask a Customer Service Ambassador for assistance.
- The new platform means a shorter walk from the Kiss & Ride and parking lot to where you board your train.
- Accessible parking will be temporarily relocated to the north parking lot.
Sheppard Avenue Sidewalk & Staircase:
- Crews are continuing to work on the canopy structure over the Sheppard Avenue East staircase on the west side of the rail bridge and preparing for construction of a new staircase on the east side of the rail bridge.
- Until May 2021, the north sidewalk along Sheppard Avenue East between the signalized intersection at the entrance of the Agincourt GO Station and Agincourt Drive will remain closed to complete construction of both staircase structures that will lead to Agincourt Station. When the west staircase canopy construction is complete, work will begin on the east staircase. The sidewalk will remain closed for the duration of construction to maintain pedestrian safety and allow for storage of materials and equipment in the area.
- The south sidewalk will be open at all times. Access to the Agincourt GO Station from Sheppard Avenue East is available from the signalized intersection at the entrance of the Agincourt GO Station.

Boarding Your Train
Due to recent service changes, you may have to adjust where you normally board your train. Some coaches will not open from outside of the train. Please spread out along the platform and keep the accessibility coach available for those who need it most.

As work progresses, you can expect additional changes to the parking lot layout. However, the current number of parking spaces will always remain as we work to improve your station.
When the south side of the platform work is complete and the first tunnel and elevator are installed, we switch our work to the north side of the station. This means door restrictions will also change.
How You Will Benefit
We’re building new station features to accommodate the additional 1,000 daily customers we anticipate in the next 10 years and to prepare for future two-way, all-day service. By the end of 2021, you will have access to:
- new station building that will be LEED certified;
- a new passenger pick-up and drop-off area (Kiss & Ride)
- a new second track and platform;
- a renovated existing platform;
- two new pedestrian tunnels with elevators;
- canopies and integrated shelters on the platforms to protect you from the elements;
- better connection to Sheppard Avenue at the south end of the platforms; and
- more landscaping.
These improvements will help support future 15-minute, two-way all day service between Unionville and Union Station. Learn about more service and improvements planned for your corridor at Metrolinx.com/Stouffville.
